Frank Cooper and his team from Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc were excellent! They arrived on time  and thoroughly inspected all areas of the property I was considering renting. They found things that needed to be repaired by the landlord before we signed the lease. Frank reviewed his findings with us. He explained all of his concerns, and he patiently answered all of our questions. Then the next day I received a very detailed report that included several pictures and detailed explanations. If you want a kind, knowledgeable, and thorough inspector, don’t hesitate to call Frank Cooper with Atlanta Property. I would highly recommend him! Truly a 5 star company!

Have used Atlanta Property Inspections several times for my buyers.  Their team is always very thorough and educational for the new home owners.  Much information is shared about past/current codes, potential issues and how to have the issues repaired.  I will continue to use Atlanta Property Inspectors for future inspections, and my clients have been very happy with their services as well!

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!

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!

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.

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!

This was our first experience with Atlanta Property Inspections, Frank Cooper was the lead inspector and he was inspecting a new construction one bedroom plus den in Alpharetta for a buyer client of ours. The inspection report was both detailed and comprehensive. We have tried out a few premium home inspection companies over the past year, looking for a good additional inspection resource, and based on our experience with Frank Cooper, I think we have found it.

Atlanta property inspections gave me a very competitor quote and stuck to it for final pricing. They were able to get someone out to do the inspection so quickly. Frank and James were very thorough and helpful during the process they encouraged me to look at what they found, the good and bad, so I knew exactly what I am buying.  I couldn't have asked for a better inspection experience!

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.

Why Are Property Disclosures Important?

When someone tries to buy or sell a property, the buyer and the seller must provide disclosures to the other party as the laws require. Failing to do this and having a case regarding this in the future can result in legal problems. To inform everyone more about property disclosure, we gathered some information. Throughout this article, we will go over the common disclosures that every person should pay attention to and how Atlanta Property Inspection can help.

Death In The House

Some disclosure requirements and laws are different in different states. One of these laws is death in the home. If a person dies due to natural causes, suicides, or accidents that are unrelated to the property, a seller doesn’t have to disclose the information. However, if the death is related to crimes or due to the condition of the house, the information has to be disclosed.

Repair History

One of the disclosures that almost every state requires is the repair history of a house. This is also a very important way to know the condition of a house and be able to take action. Some states, like Texas, require structural repairs, and to the outside, looks must be reported. For example, any repairs to the roof, fences, foundation, floor, sidewalks, electrical and plumbing system, and fault lines must be reported.

Water Damage

Water damage is important because it can result in health hazards, personal possession damage, mold growth, and movement of the home’s structure and foundation. The damage a water can do to a house is unimaginable. In states like Michigan, the seller is required to disclose any damage that has been done by water. This can be leaks, damage from floods, water in the basement, and much more. Many problems, like water damage, can result in hazards. Let’s go over more of them in the next section.

Potential Hazards

Some states require sellers to disclose information about the presence of toxic and hazardous items. These can range from items containing asbestos, lead-based paint, toxic waste, and many more. This is to protect the buyers from mindlessly buying a house. Other actions like having a property in flood and having structures containing asbestos, fuel, oil, and other substances leaked on the property also require it to be disclosed.

Missing Items From the List

Lastly, some states like Texas require the seller to disclose information about the list of items a house contains and their condition. If, when you move into a house, you don’t see any items that should be on the list, this can be used for legal procedures. You can also talk about the items that you want to be contained in the house in advance by the homeowner.
