Hi Fellow Inspectors,
I’m trying to find out what is the average Home Inspector’s practice when inspecting a residence during a pre-purchase inspection with respect to opening i.e. “taking off” the front panel to see how the connections are made etc.
My question to you is:
- Do you do it as part of your inspection?
- Are you obligated to do it where you inspect?
- Which Standard of Practice / law governs this where you inspect
I inspect in more than one jurisdiction and the practice varies even within one jurisdiction and your answers would be informative and most welcome.
