The complete list of items noted is found throughout the body of the report, including Normal Maintenance items. Be sure to read your entire report!For your safety and liability, we recommend that you hire only licensed contractors when having any work done. If the living area has been remodeled or part of an addition, we recommend that you verify the permit and certificate of occupancy.
