Preparing your building for an inspection

Before the inspection, make sure that the inspector has access to the following:

Electrical panels Heating equipment Water heaters Main water shut off Under-floor crawl space Attic access (remove clothes and other items if access is in a closet) Garage attic openings (remove items that impede access) Under-sink areas Ground-fault protected electrical outlets (remove or move appliances or other items that block access in garages, basements, workshops, etc.) Kitchen sinks (sinks should be empty) Fireplaces (remove plants, decorative items, etc. from in front of fireplaces and wood stoves.) Interior areas, garages, basements and yards (kennel, cage or otherwise remove pets that cannot be let out or that may harm the inspector or that may be harmed by the inspection. Locked items or areas (remove locks, unlock doors, or provide keys so that the inspector can open electrical main panels, subpanels, storerooms, etc.)

In addition, on the inspection day be sure all heating systems and water heaters are operational. Pilot lights should always be lit. If pilot lights and/or valves are off, the assumption will be that the appliances they serve are inoperable. Finally, relax, you've done all you can to make sure your home is shown to its best advantage.

There are additional things you can do to prepare your building for the inspector's visit that will make the process easier for the inspector and, as a result, less time consuming and disruptive for you.

Before the inspection, you should check the following:

Operate all plumbing and shut-off valves and outside hose bibs Operate all faucets, toilets, tubs and plumbing fixtures Check the air conditioner and heater units to make sure they are operating effectively Operate all thermostats Operate all exterior doors and representative interior doors and windows, making sure they open, close and lock Make sure all screens are in place Operate all built-in kitchen appliances Operate all light switches and make sure they are working Locate all operating manuals and warranties Make sure you have keys available for all locks
