Introduction to Inspecting Built-In Appliances

The appliances that are a permanent part of the home, such as cook tops, vent hoods, ovens, trash compactors, dishwashers, and garbage disposals, should be evaluated during a home inspection. If, as a part of the sale of a home, the buyer negotiates with the seller to include freestanding items, such as refrigerators or washing machines, you will probably be asked to include these items in the inspection. This course will list considerations of inspecting appliances and common features of appliances. In addition, the course will list appliances typically included in a home inspection and identify their reportable deficiencies.
