Individuals differ regarding what they expect from a property when seeking to purchase a home. What may be a deal-breaker to some may not be that serious a concern to others. It is important to realize that Hillsborough County home inspections are not pass or fail. They are simply a professional evaluation of the major systems and components of a home. The intent of an inspection is to provide information for the client about the home in question.
Beryl Project Engineering provides reliable, experienced Hillsborough County home inspections for buyers and sellers. Our Certified Master Inspectors do not make recommendations to buyers or sellers concerning making a sale or purchase. Those decisions are the sole responsibility of the buyers and sellers.
Serious Problems That May Interfere with Home Sales
Every individual seeking to purchase a home must decide what is acceptable and what is a deal-breaker. This will depend on many factors that include cost of repairs, extent of necessary repairs, time to repair, and other personal concerns. Some of the most serious issues that interfere with home sales that we have discovered in Hillsborough County home inspections include:
- A bad roof that needs replacement
- Asbestos issues
- Chimney damage
- Drainage and water issues
- Flood damage
- Lead paint
- Mold problems
- Plumbing issues
- Structural problems
- Termites and other pests
- Well water issues
- Wiring and electrical issues
It is important to note that disclosure laws vary from state to state and between different municipalities. Some areas require homeowners to reveal everything about the home while others may not be so stringent. The Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act of 1992 requires anyone who is selling a home that was built before 1978 disclose all information about lead-based paint in the home. This is the only federally mandated disclosure when selling a home.

Too much is riding on the purchase or sale of a home to avoid a professional home inspection. Beryl Project Engineering provides superior home inspections for both buyers and sellers.
