General Comments:

This inspection report identifies items in need of attention, maintenance, or repair, which
is the primary function of a home inspection. Overall, it is the inspector's opinion that this
is a quality-built dwelling that is in need of only minor repair to keep it in serviceable con-
dition. Some additional maintenance items may be discovered in the course of repairs,
upgrading, or when the home is vacant. We recommend that you obtain repair estimates
from competent specialists as an aid in planning your future course of action.

The items listed in this report are marked as Satisfactory, In Need of Maintenance, Pro-
fessional Consultation, or Not Satisfactory. The inspector has identified and described
the home's major systems and components, and has listed problems found in readily ac-
cessible areas as explained in the pre-inspection agreement. You should refer to the
pages in this report for information about a specific component or system. This summary
is an overview, not an all-inclusive list of defects found in the dwelling. It is the client's re-




                  Summary of Items in need of Immediate Attention

      terior pump space. Recommend a licensed professional install GFCI’s within 6ft of a
      water source ie. sink, tub, pump or exterior location.

  •   Loose and disconnected grounding wire to main pump in pool pump house. Cor-
      roded electrical connections and missing cover plates. Recommend a licensed pro-
      fessional repair and replace with new.

  •   Severely corroded galvanised hot and cold pipes to washer at sink in garage. Rec-
      ommend replacing with new piping and replace washer hoses with steel braided
      supply lines.

  •   Handyman wiring splice to water heater, no GFCI outlet and missing cover plate.
      Recommend a licensed professional repair and replace with new.

  •   Resin aggregate surface treatment on front steps, side and rear patios shows sig-
      nificant weathering and degradation. Recommend consulting a specialist to repair

                                                                             Inspection report prepared by:
                                                                               Mason and Associates Ltd
                                                                                      November 7th 2009
                              Site Grounds & Grading
Our inspection of the Site Grounds and Grading includes the surface drainage, grading, some
fencing, gates, sidewalks, patios, driveways and retaining walls adjacent to the structure. This
inspection is not intended to address or include any geotechnical condition or site stability in-
formation. For information concerning these conditions a structural engineer should be con-
sulted. Any reference to grade is limited to only areas around the exterior of the exposed foun-
dation or exterior walls. This inspection is visual in nature and does not attempt to determine
drainage performance of the site or the condition of any underground piping, including public
water supply or sewer service piping or septic systems. When decks and porches are built
close to the ground where no viewing or access is possible, we cannot make accurate opin-
ions. These areas as well as others that are too low to enter or in some other manner are inac-
cessible, are excluded from the inspection and are not addressed in this report. We routinely
recommend that inquiry be made with the seller about knowledge of conditions.

                              Exterior and Structure
The inspection of the exterior of the building includes the cladding/walls, trim, eaves, soffits,
fascias, decks, porches, downspouts, railings, doors, windows and shutters.. Areas hidden
from view by finished walls or stored items cannot be judged and are not a part of this inspec-
tion . Minor cracks are typical in many foundations and most do not represent a structural prob-
lem. If major cracks are present and indicate significant movement we routinely recommend
further evaluation be made by a registered structural engineer. All concrete slabs experience
some degree of cracking due to shrinkage in the drying and curing process or minor settle-
ment. All items listed are inspected for their proper function, poor installation, excessive wear
and general state of repair. Where deck carpeting, stacked firewood, excessive vegetation, soil
and other coverings are installed over decking and patio surfaces, the materials or their nature
of construction and condition cannot be determined.

                                  Roofing Components
The inspection of the roofing system includes a visual examination of the surface materials,
connections, penetrations and roof collection systems. We examine the roofing surface for
damage, deterioration and possible leaks. We may offer opinions concerning repair and or re-
placement if warranted. Opinions stated herein concerning are based on the general condition
of the roof as evidenced by our visual inspection. These do not constitute a warranty that the
roof is or will remain free of leaks. All roofing systems require regular and routine maintenance
and failure to perform routine maintenance or visual inspections after high winds may result in
leaks and accelerated deterioration of the roof and its components. The only way to determine
whether a roof is absolutely watertight is too observe it’s performance during heavy and pro-
longed rainfall. Many times this situation is not present during our inspection. We recommend a
visual inspection in the roof crawl space during heavy and prolonged rain to identify potential
leaks and water staining.

                     Electrical Systems & Components
Our examination of the electrical system includes a visual examination of the exposed and ac-
cessible branch circuits, wiring, service panel, over current protection devices, lighting fixtures,
switches and receptacles. Service equipment, proper grounding, wiring methods and bonding
are focal points. We inspect for adverse conditions such as lack of grounding and bonding,
over-fusing, exposed wiring, open-air wire splices, reverse polarity and defective GFCI’s. The
hidden nature of the electrical wiring prevents inspection of every length of wire or their con-
nections. Telephone, video, cable, audio, security systems and other low voltage systems were
not included in this inspection. We recommend you have the seller or a specialist demonstrate
the serviceability or locations of these systems to you if necessary. Any electrical repairs at-
tempted by anyone other than a licensed electrician should be approached with caution. Op-
eration of time clock motors is not verified. Inoperative light fixtures often lack bulbs or have
dead bulbs installed. Light bulbs are not changed during the inspection. Smoke alarms should
be installed within 15 feet of all bedroom doors and in bedrooms and should be hard wired to-
gether in series of have 10 year lithium batteries.

                         Plumbing Systems & Components
Our inspection of the plumbing system includes a visual examination of the exposed portions
of the domestic water supply, drain waste, vent, gas lines, faucets, fixtures, drains, traps, ex-
posed pipes and fittings. These items are examined for proper function, excessive or unusual
wear, leakage and general state of repair. The hidden nature of piping prevents inspection of
every pipe and joint connection, especially in walls, floors and ceiling voids. This inspection
does not include irrigation systems, water wells, septic disposal systems (cesspits) unless spe-
cifically noted. Our inspection of the water heater includes a visual examination of the accessi-
ble portions of the tank, gas, electrical and /or water connections, venting and safety valves.
These items are examined for proper function, excessive or unusual wear, leakage and gen-
eral state of repair.

                        Heating and Cooling Systems

Typically Bermuda homes do not have central heating and cooling. Split unit systems with heat
pumps are common. Our inspection of the mechanical heating and cooling is visual and lim-
ited in scope to the following conditions: Window and/or wall mounted air conditioning units are
not inspected. The cooling supply adequacy or distribution balance are not inspected. Pressure
tests on coolant systems are not within the scope of this inspection and no representation is
made regarding coolant charge or line integrity. Judgment of system efficiency or capacity fall
outside the scope of this inspection. Cooling systems are not dismantled in any way and ac-
cess covers are not removed.. The interior components of evaporators, condensers and heat
pumps are not viewed. The presence of leaking refrigerant lines, heat pump oil is outside the
scope but we will note any obvious signs of malfunction.

                                 Interior Components
Our inspection of the interior includes a visual inspection of the readily accessible portions of
the walls, ceilings, floors, doors, cabinetry, countertops, steps, stairways, balconies and rail-
ings. A representative sample of the accessible windows and electrical receptacles are in-
spected. Plumbing faucets, fixtures, drains, and traps in the kitchen and bathrooms/laundry
room are visually inspected. These features are examined for proper function, excessive wear
and general state of repair. Please note the inspector is not required to operate shut off valves.
In some cases all or portions of these components may not be visible because of furnishings
and personal items. In these cases some of the items may not be inspected. The condition of
walls behind wall coverings, paneling and furnishings cannot be judged. Only the general con-
dition of visible portions of floors is included in this inspection. As a general rule, cosmetic defi-
ciencies are considered normal wear and tear and are not reported. Determining the source of
odors is not part of the inspection. Floor covering damage or stains may be hidden by furniture.
The condition of underlying floor covering s is not inspected. Determining the condition of insu-
lated glass windows is not always possible due to temperature, weather and lighting condi-
tions. Fireplaces should be cleaned and inspected on a regular basis by a qualified profes-
sional.
