MRC HOME INSPECTION REPORT

   
TOTAL HOME INSPECTION INSPECTION CHECKLIST

Total Home Inspection Report

MRC Uses a checklist to make sure that he is getting all parts of the house.

We check off those items that are in good condition and make notes about those that are not.

(Note that this list describes an ideal house, but in our experience no house is perfect –not even brand new ones!!)

 This checklist is relied upon as a home inspection report, only when certified by Waymon or Agent for MRC.

If you require a home inspection, contact Waymon at 863 287 5981.

Waymon has been a certified builder in the state of Florida since 1974. Florida License # CBC 1250530
