At times, conditions may exist and may not have any visible signs to indicate its existence. Such items must be disclosed by the seller of the property. COMPANY NAME recommends that Client seek the advice of his legal counsel and/or real estate agent to identify items subject to disclosure in additions to those set forth in COMPANY NAME written inspection report. COMPANY NAME inspections are performed with consideration given to the age of the structure, items marked good must in all cases be considered good for the age of the item. Also, items in less than good condition must be marked as such, even though the condition may be normal for the age. Opinions vary from person to person and the report is the opinion of the inspector and must be considered as such. This report is not a mold or hazardous materials inspection.
