B. A. King Home Inspections, LLC

              Cost for Professional Inspection
               with a Detailed Informative Report

Note:  Please be careful and checkout my sample reports on this site when comparing inspection fees with other companies, all inspectors do not provide anywhere near the level of detail that I do.
See IHINA for a list of true independent inspectors.

Most houses cost between 350 and 500 but depend on size, age and foundation.

Termite Inspection $75 available from reputable company.  

Have a well?  I can send detailed instructions so you can do your own sampling to save money. (For inspection customers only).

Radon inspection with electronic equipment also available.

    I will include a basic thermal image (IR) scan of ceilings
                          and  interior walls at no extra charge.

Call with heated square footage, foundation type (crawlspace, slab, basement), house age and city for exact inspection fee.

I will meet or beat any valid inspection fee quoted, in writing, by an E&O insured certified master inspector that includes an infrared camera in my service area.

Please print, fill out, sign and fax in the inspection agreement available here.

Very Important !  Please read the following:

A new home is a very important purchase decision and you need a report that discloses details on what was found, not just a recommendation to call in a contractor.  My reports provide much more information than just the minimum needed to decide on a home purchase.  NC and SC do not require inspectors to report on older roofs, older heating and air systems and older water heaters that are functioning but Bruce King will include all of this in the report summary as necessary.  This is why you need a true independent inspector like Bruce King.  A new roof, new heating and air and new water heater a few years later can cost between $10,000 - $20,000 and up. 

I will not send an employee to do your inspection.  Beware: Most inspectors in this area are part-time and uninsured (No E&O insurance).

Buying a home is a very serious decision. This is no time to let someone talk you into a quick, easy inspection. The cost of a professional home inspection is very small relative to the cost of the home being inspected.  I have been told by many people in this industry that I am the most detailed and thorough inspector available in the Charlotte, Fort Mill and Rock Hill areas.

  I answer my own phone calls.


It is very important to fax the inspection agreement as soon as possible to ensure your appointment.  If you do not have a fax, a local office supply store or Walmart can help for a small fee.  It can also be scanned and emailed.
 

Important Note: Fees include a thorough foundation crawlspace and attic inspection (accessible areas). 

If your inspection fees are being paid by your company or relocation company or being paid by the seller please inform me so that we can arrange for this.

If delayed payment has been agreed to :   A check for the full fee plus $35 must be presented to inspector at or before the inspection time, inspector will hold the check for 50 days maximum and return it when payment from the closing attorney is received.   Client agrees to have funds available immediately if property is not purchased or if the closing attorney does not include the invoice in the closing.


Payments can now be made at the left of this page via Paypal's secure site for credit cards.

A good home inspection has everything to do with the amount of effort and time invested in the inspection process. Bruce King performs his inspections with a passion for doing the very best work for his client. 

I have saved clients thousands of dollars on their homes and also
helped them to realize which homes may not be a good choice.

 

Investment property and foreclosures in poor condition must be disclosed to the Inspector to obtain the proper fee.

Investor advice:  Many banks will not turn on the utilities, so you have to open up accounts in your name for this.  Unless you are buying at very low cost or plan to do major renovations, you want the utilities on to obtain a thorough inspection.  Please do not schedule an inspection the same day the utilities are to be turned on, they might not have them on until later in the day.

Inspections in some distant areas and/or houses in poor condition require prepayment.

Commercial property inspections require more information on
the size, age, current use and intended use.  Fees are based
on the type and level of inspection needed.  Please email pictures of commercial property if possible. 


Note: Construction phase inspections are not regulated by NC or SC and E&O, GL insurance does not cover these inspections.  Full responsibility of construction and final product is retained by the builder and the builders insurance.
