- Latin for “Let the buyer beware”

What is Home Inspection?

Before buying a house, many buyers wisely contract with a Home Inspection company to determine that the structure, including electrical and plumbing systems, is safe and not in need of immediate repairs.  A Home Inspection is done visually by an inspector who has been trained to look for signs of damage or disrepair that a prospective buyer should be aware of before making a final decision.
