Home Owner’s Maintenance Inspection or Home Sellers’s Maintenance Inspection
In addition to performing home inspections for our clients, we also perform Home Owner’s Maintenance Inspection or Home Sellers’s Maintenance Inspection that educate existing home-owners about what can be done in order to avoid further problems with the home they own and what corrective actions should be taken in order to avoid expensive problems down the road and often to make reselling the home easier.

A verbal only Home Owner’s Maintenance Inspection or Home Sellers’s Maintenance Inspection is a visual, functional, non-invasive (without moving personal property, furniture, equipment, plants, soil, snow, ice, or debris), inspection of the readily ACCESSIBLE elements of the following components of a residential building: structural components, exterior components, roofing system, plumbing system, electrical system, heating system, cooling system, interior components, insulation components and ventilation system, fireplaces and solid fuel burning appliances, or any other related residential housing component, excluding recreational facilities and outbuildings other than garages or carports to determine if MATERIAL DEFECTS exist.
The purpose of the verbal only Home Owner’s Maintenance Inspection and Home Sellers’s Maintenance Inspection is to make you aware of any MATERIAL DEFECTS that are found in the major systems and components. ACCESSIBLE means available for visual inspection without requiring the moving of personal property, dismantling, destructive measures, or any action which will likely involve risk to persons or property.
This inspection is ONLY intended to make the existing home owner aware of problems that exist in the home, it is absolutely NOT a home inspection performed for a home purchaser since this inspection will NOT provide a written report as required by the standards of practice of N.J.A.C.13:40-15 nor a Home Inspection Book that may be referenced in other documents and communications.
