What is an Inspection?

An inspection is a visual inspection of the property at that snapshot in time.  The inspection covers the mechanical and structural components and any health and safety concerns.  The Real Estate 7.0 Contract specifically outlines those points too.  Cosmetics are not a part of the inspection.  White Glove inspectors will take the opportunity to educate our customers beyond the minimum requirements. One can always read the Illinois State Licensing Home Inspection Requirements to fully understand the scope of an inspection
