How to Prepare for a Home Inspection

Text Version:

✔️ If home is empty, leave utilities on and pilot lights lit.
✔️ Make sure electrical sockets, light fixtures, switches and fans work.
✔️ Confirm smoke and carbon monoxide detectors operate.
✔️ Check that faucets and toilets run properly and don?t leak.
✔️ Clean stove and over so they won?t smoke and set off alarm when tested.
✔️ Verify doors and windows open and close and all hardware works.
✔️ Clear obstructions around furnace, water heaters and attic access.
✔️ Leave keys for outbuildings and exterior electrical boxes.
✔️ Remove brush and debris from exterior inspection points.
✔️ Gather documentation for renovations or repairs that have been made.
✔️ Provide sketch showing location of septic tank and well.
✔️ Remove or crate pets.
✔️ Plan to be away for three hours minimum.
✔️ Consider having home pre-inspected so you can fix problems before the official inspection.
