The home inspection checklist is designed to give the real estate agent or prospective purchaser a systematic inspection report on the findings of any readily accessible major flaws or deficiencies in the significant components and systems of a home. It is not designed to, nor does it profess to facilitate; detection of all flaws, problems or occurrences that might exist in any given home.
