The seller can help by doing these things for the inspection or checking with your real estate agent before the inspection:
- Make sure your water, gas, oil and electrical services are on. Inspectors are forbidden from turning these on.
- Confirm all appliances are operational and your pilots are on.
- There should be a clear space around the electrical panels (normally 3’x3’)so that the covers can be removed safely.
- If the attic access is in the closet, the closet should be completely empty.
- Make sure access openings to attic areas and crawl spaces are accessible.
- If you have pets make sure to have them secured before your inspector arrives.
