The inspector Frank came to our house to inspect the deck and provide a list of safety problems. While he was there we asked him to take a look at some termite damage in the attic.  When he went to the attic he spotted problems with a squirrel infestation requiring immediate action to correct for chewed wiring and unsanitary conditions.  We were unaware of this problem.  Frank provided a comprehensive inspection report in PDF format including multiple photos showing deck post deterioration, sagging joists and yes even a picture of the live squirrel in the attic. Frank is totally professional, knows his area of expertise very well and offers sound recommendations on how to correct problems without spending money for unnecessary improvements.  For example he told us the ledger board was in good shape and did not have to be replaced, only secured to the house wall with additional bolts. The small amount we paid for the inspection was well spent because the inspection will end up saving us money in the long run.

We are relocating from out of state and we were in need of an inspection with a very tight turn around. We received incredibly thorough reporting and an availability to answer questions quickly. Cary Cooper’s professional and expert insight saved us from a potential health hazard. I would very much recommend Atlanta Property Inspection for any of your inspection needs!

Atlanta Property Inspections came to do a pre-purchasing inspection on a home my husband and  I plan to buy! We had a very short due diligence period, but that was no issue for these guys. They fit us in their schedule on very short notice and were such a pleasure to work with. Cary and Riley came to do the inspection and did a fantastic job walking us through the inspection to let us know what they found, and suggestions on how to fix all of the issues! Shout out to Cary, for answering all of our questions and having such a great personality! We truly appreciate you guys taking the time to help us through such a very stressful time. We HIGHLY recommend this company!

The inspector was really thorough and was patient in explaining to me what he was observing. He showed me where the shutoff valve was for the water and gave recommendations on various things. The report that was provided made sense and pictures were taken of some things that were found. The inspector was also very personable which put me at ease about asking questions. Thank you, Alex and Atlanta Property Inspections!

My client used the company for their home inspection during their due diligence period. Jeremy and his partner were very kind and accommodating with answering questions. The report was very thorough and I like that they also note positive things about the homes in their report as well and not just what's wrong with the house. You can read the good and the bad.

This was my first experience with Atlanta Property Inspections. Alex Sozonov was my inspector. Very oriented details and willing to explained all questions with professional knowledge. Report came into my email box late night. Clearly, it has been covered all details. Plus, show up on time.

WOW! I can't even make this story up. In this very crazy market (June 2021) it seemingly takes 2 week closing (sometimes with *0* days due diligence!) to purchase a home. Anyway, Frank came recommended by another very reputable inspector, and I was fortunate he came!! The home we were looking at for my mother was a 1975 build and within 1 hour of the inspector being there a FIRE from an electrical panel broke out! Frank contained the fire, and was SO calm, had his team address the matter, was in touch with the agent and homeowner. He said in over 20+ years of him inspecting homes nothing like this had ever happened. Anyway the inspection was VERY thorough and Frank handled all matters very professionally. We will be working with Frank and his team on any home inspections in the future. I highly recommend!

Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc. was referred to us by our realtor for our home inspection. Our inspector was Cary Cooper. He really took the time to answer all of our questions about his findings. We didn't feel rushed or that any question was too silly. He gave us peace of mind with a few of our concerns and was honest, even if we weren't to thrilled with the news. Overall, it was a great experience and we would definitely use (and refer)  Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc. in the future for any inspection needs.

What Happens If You Fail Your Apartment Inspection?

When it's time to move out or renew the lease, many tenants usually go through an apartment inspection. Maintaining the integrity of the building and the welfare of the tenants is the major goal of an apartment inspection. Since the home inspector's report is quite important for owners and tenants, knowing what will happen during and after the inspection is crucial. It's also important to know what to do in case you fail these inspections. So, in this article, we will go over the things that may happen if you don't pass your inspections.

Preventing Future Leases

Some property management companies want the recommendations of a past homeowner or can call the past homeowner to see if the previous tenant left the apartment in good condition. So, if, as a tenant, you have left the apartment in an unacceptable condition, other places may not consider you as a potential tenant.

Possibility of Terminating Lease

If you consistently break the terms of the rental agreement or in extreme circumstances, this occurs. Your landlord has the right to refuse to renew your lease after it expires if an inspection reveals problems and they are not fixed. It can even go to the point where you have to leave the residence before the lease's expiration date, and in this case, you have to look for a new location to reside.

Repairs and Additional Expenses

Most of the time, homeowners or the management will want the security deposit. If things get worse, you might have to pay for replacements or repairs. Obviously, this will add to your financial load.

What Are The Things That Can Get You To Fail During A Home Inspection?

There's a good probability you won't pass an inspection if you've done any harm to the property. This covers both major impairments and normal wear and tear. For example, any holes in the walls, broken fixtures, harm to the flooring, damaged doors or windows, and damaged appliances count as harm to property. Negligence is another reason for a failed home inspection. It is likely that you will not pass your inspection if you are not taking good care of your property. Most of the time ignored leaks or clogged drains are the ones that create the most problems. Finally, any violations to your lease agreement can cause you to fail during an inspection. This covers things like smoking in a non-smoking unit, bringing in more people than is permitted, and pets in unauthorized homes.
