In New Jersey, home inspectors are required to check the readily-accessible elements of the following:
According to the New Jersey Standards of Practice, home inspectors are NOT required to check anything beyond those components listed above. However, we will let you know about a problems we see even if we are not required to check them. The following items fall outside the scope of a typical home inspection:
No, you are free to waive your inspection and even buy the property sight unseen. However, a home inspection is a crucial step for any potential home buyer, as it can provide valuable information about the condition of the property. During a home inspection, we examine the major components of the home, including the roof, foundation, electrical and plumbing systems, HVAC systems, and more. By identifying any issues or potential problems, you can make an informed decision about whether to proceed with the purchase, negotiate repairs or a lower price, or walk away from the deal altogether. In the long run, investing in a home inspection can potentially save you significant time, money, and hassle by avoiding unexpected repairs and expenses. As the old saying goes, "caveat emptor" or "buyer beware" still applies when you are buying your house.
A home inspection is not technically exhaustive or quantitative in nature. It is also important to keep in mind that a home inspection is a snapshot of the property's condition at a specific point in time and cannot predict future issues that may arise.
A home inspector cannot see through walls or floors, and may not be able to identify hidden problems such as mold or asbestos. Home inspectors are generalists and do not have the technical competence to diagnose and remedy every single problem that may be present in a house. They are akin to a primary care doctor: If there is something concerning then you'll be referred to a specialist for a second opinion.
Overall, while a home inspection can be a valuable tool for home buyers, it is not a guarantee that the property does not have any problems. In fact, all houses have at least some problems and a quality home inspection will identify those problems before you sign on the dotted line.
