McDonald Home Inspection, Inc. Illinois License # 450001666

FAQ6. Can a house fail a home inspection?
No. A professional home inspection is an examination of the current condition of a home. It is not an appraisal, which determines market value. It is not a municipal inspection, which verifies compliance to local codes and standards. A home inspector will not pass or fail a house, but will describe the physical condition of a property and indicates what may need repair or replacement.

FAQ7. If I'm buying a home, when do I call the home inspector?
Before you sign a contract or purchase agreement, make your purchase obligation contingent upon the findings of a professional home inspection. The contingency specifies the terms to which the buyer and seller are obligated. Contact MHI immediately after signing. We are aware of the time constraints involved and can usually schedule your inspection within 48 hours.
