Inspections come at a substantial cost to you as a buyer, so it’s important to vet out the industry professionals (home inspectors now have to be licensed in the State of New Hampshire, not the case just a short time ago). Here are the questions you should ask to find the home inspector who will do the best possible job on your behalf:
- Do you belong to the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI)?
- How many inspections have you performed in this area…How long have you been in the profession?
- Do you have Errors & Omissions Liability coverage?
- Do you pick up the radon canisters? (Due to liability, it is not the practice of our agents to collect test samples.)
- What’s the cost for a General Inspection, plus tests (i.e. septic, water, radon air & water)?
