It is beyond the scope of the inspection to comment on or evaluate air or water quality, hazardous materials such as lead in paint, or asbestos, radon or any toxic materials or molds. We will not be testing for environmental concerns.
Q6. What type of guarantee do you offer?
A6. With Treasure Home Inspection, we will support you with any questions or concerns you may have over the course of your occupancy. However, due to most closing dates being 30 - 120 days after the inspection, there is no warranty or guarantee on the inspection itself. We will document what is working on the day of the inspection for your benefit, but do not know if it will be working as of the closing date.
If any issues do arise, as your home inspector we will work with your realtor and lawyer until you as the client are satisfied. Your best interests always come first!
It is the responsibility of your realtor and lawyer to go back to the vendors for any just compensation.
