Home Inspection of the residence located at _
(the "Residence"). The Standard Home Inspection shall be performed on , 20_. Client will

GENERAL PURPOSE AND SCOPE OF INSPECTION

The purpose of a home inspection is to assess the condition of the Residence at the time of the inspection using visual observations, simple tools, and
normal homeowner operational control, and to report deficiencies of specific systems and components. Unless specifically excluded below, a Washington
State Licensed Home Inspector is responsible for performing a visual and noninvasive inspection of the readily accessible systems and components of a
home as identified and described in Washington Administrative Code ('WAC") sections 308-40BC-070 through -180 (EXHIBIT A to this Agreement), to the
extent such systems and components exist at the Residence. Such components and systems include the roof, foundation, exterior, heating system, air-
conditioning system, structure, plumbing and electrical systems, and other aspects of the home as may be identified in WAC 308-408C-070 through -1BO
(EXHIBIT A to this Agreement), to the extent such systems and components exist at the Residence.

The Inspector shall prepare a written report of the general condition of those systems and components as they appear at the time of the inspection. The
inspection report is a written opinion of what was visible and evident at the time of the inspection. The report is not a listing of repairs to be made and is not
intended for use as a guide in re-negotiating or making a determination about a real estate transaction. Items that are not listed in the inspection report were
not inspected and are not included under the scope of the inspection service provided.

A home inspection is not technically exhaustive and does not identify concealed conditions or latent defects. The Inspector is acting as a licensed home
inspector and is not acting as a licensed engineer or expert in any specific craft or trade. If the Inspector recommends consulting other specialized experts,
Client should do so and such consultation will be at the Client's expense. Not all conditions are apparent at the time of inspection, and the written report is
not a substitute for any seller disclosure statement as may be required by law.

Inclusion of additional items to be inspected or items to be deleted from the inspection may be negotiated and/or mutually agreed upon by the Client and the
Inspection Firm as indicated in an addendum to this Agreement. An additional fee may be assessed.

OUTSIDE THE SCOPE OF THE INSPECTION

The following are specifically NOT within the scope of this inspection, unless otherwise agreed to in an addendum to this Agreement:

• Investigation of mold, asbestos, lead paint, water, soil, air quality or other environmental issues.

• Inspection of any area which is not exposed to view, is concealed, or is inaccessible because of soils, walls, floors, carpets, ceilings, furnishings,
or any other obstruction is not included in this inspection. CLIENT AGREES TO ASSUME ALL THE RISK FOR ALL CONDITIONS WHICH ARE
CONCEALED FROM VIEW AT THE TIME OF THE INSPECTION.

Destructive testing or dismantling beyond normal home owner access.

• All Exclusions and Limitation listed in WAC 30B-40BC-030(1) through (20) (EXHIBIT A to this Agreement).

• Determining compliance with installation guidelines, construction documents, manufacturer's specifications, building codes, local ordinances,
zoning regulations, covenants, or other restrictions, including local interpretations thereof.

Client specifically acknowledges that the Property Inspection will not, and is not intended to detect, identify, disclose, or report on the presence of
Chinese Drywall products, or the actual potential environmental concerns or hazards arising out of the existence of these products. Client agrees to
hold the Company and the Inspector harmless for any injury, health risk, or damages of any nature caused or contributed to by these products.
