For Home Buyers/Sellers 
Professionals perform a visual inspection and produce a written report of the condition of residential properties for buyers or owners. The purpose of such an examination is to describe observable major defects which require repairs.

The minimum scope of the inspection and report are described by the State of Tennessee Standards of Practice. Inspectors are, of course, permitted to exceed the Standards. 

Inspections are also performed according to a strict code of ethics, which protects consumers from conflicts of interest, and which assures an independent opinion regarding the property.

A basic home inspection of an average small home that meets the minimum State of Tennessee Standards of Practice should take two hours or more. Larger homes and homes with more features take considerably more time. Naturally, the more thorough the inspector is, the longer the inspection will take.
