Home Inspection Frequently Asked Questions

Homebuyers often have questions about inspections, and what they entail. Read through the FAQs below to learn how Bell County Inspection Service will perform your inspection. If you still have questions, feel free to contact us.

Typically, a quality home inspection requires three to four hours to complete. Determining factors are the size, age and how the home is equipped. This allows for multiple trips around the property and gives the inspector several reference points to make determinations about certain aspects of the property. Not all things can be revealed with a quick trip through each room. The house must be seen from several vantage points in order to connect the dots. Houses will give clues; a good inspector is thinking how each clue relates to the other. The house is a system and should be view as such. Some clues reveal themselves in the strangest places, in the strangest ways.


I want your home inspection to be an interactive inspection (If you so desire). I will personally walk you through each aspect of the inspection process and answer all of your questions regarding your potential purchase. However, I would prefer to do this personal walk through after I have had ample time to thoroughly inspect your property. That way we will hit all of the highlights of your inspection. This will insure a more detailed and thorough inspection.


Your home inspection report will be electronically delivered in a PDF report that is formatted in a uniformed TREC approved lay-out. This helps to insure that all inspection reports look the same.  This also insures that all inspectors follow the same “Standards of Practice” format that you are required to read and approve before entering into an agreement. I guarantee that you will have your report by noon the following day, assuming of course that full payment has been made. I look forward to serving you.

If you feel there has been a violation of The Real Estate License Act (law), or TREC rules, you have the right to file a complaint with TREC. Click here for more information.
