How To Determine Your Client Inspection Needs

Inspections from an Inspectors Perspective

Determining your client’s inspection needs can be confusing at best. When does your client need a Wind Mitigation Report, 4-Point Inspection or a Wood Destroying Organisms (WDO / Termite) Report? In this newsletter it is our goal to help clear up some of the confusion in an effort to help you streamline the process for your client(s).Single family detached housing can be the least confusing but also the most problematic when dealing with older properties. In almost all cases it is recommended the client get a WDO report with their Full Home Inspection.

Attached housing such as townhomes, villas and small condominium complexes can be the most confusing of all. In all cases it is recommended to consult the association and as always your insurance professional to see what is required for these properties. This includes the requirement of a WDO Report.

Mid to high rise condominiums typically have blanket reports covering wind mitigation, building certification and termite (WDO) treatments. This is typical but is not always the case and needs to be determined through the association and your insurance professional.

Inspector Qualifications Matter

Did you know?

Many home inspectors have a home inspection license without any formal education? It's true! When licensing in the state of Florida became mandatory as of July 1, 2012 anyone who was conducting business as a home inspector was "Grandfathered" into the system as a licensed home inspector.

The inspectors at Florida Inspection Services have qualifications that go way beyond the minimum Florida State requirements
