I HAVE TOOLS & INSTRUMENTS THAT CAN SAVE YOU SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF MONEY.
WOULD YOU USE AN AUTO MECHANIC WHO OWNS JUST A FEW WRENCHES?
WOULD YOU RELY ON A CARDIOLOGIST WHO DIDN’T OWN AN EKG INSTRUMENT?
WILL THE INSPECTOR YOU HIRE, HAVE AVAILABLE, THE TOOLS AND INSTRUMENTS THAT WILL HELP DECIDE IF THE INACCESSIBLE STAINS YOU SEE ARE WET AND REPRESENT ACTIVE LEAKS ?
DOES THE INSPECTOR OWN DIAGNOSTIC ELECTRICAL INSTRUMENTS AND TESTERS?
DOES HE HAVE THE UNIQUE INSTRUMENT WILL INDICATE THAT YOU CAN NOT REMOVE A WALL OR PARTITION EVEN IF IT IS NOT LOAD BEARING?
The purpose of an inspection as defined by Mass. Reg. 266 CMR 6.02 is to report on the physical conditions of systems & components listed in 266 CMR 6.04 (see WHAT’S INCLUDED for the complete regulations) which are READILY ACCESSIBLE and OBSERVABLE. The inspector is not required to use tools and instruments. All he is required to do is OBSERVE and use a screwdriver to open readily accessible panels just to OBSERVE. The second required “tool” is a $2.00 neon tester to indicate the presence or absence of 120 volt electricity.
So, the first question you should ask an inspector is: What tools and instruments do you bring? The fee is the last question you should ask. There are several others, such as can you prove that your references are genuine.
