Do I have to be present during the inspection?

New construction and vacant homes are typically not an issue since there are no occupants that may be surprised by an inspection. In the case of an occupied home, we would prefer that the applicant(s) or their representative be present during the inspection. If you choose to not have someone present, we will make an on-site effort to announce our presence at an occupied home. It is the responsibility of the applicant(s) to provide safe access to the property and to notify any person(s) or parties who may be in the occupied home during the inspection.
