Questions have arisen concerning the specified source/end point for a system or component in a home when a system or component is not in the scope of work of the home inspection.
After reviewing Board statutes and rules, including R4-30-301.01, the Board developed this substantive policy statement. This substantive policy statement is offered as guidance to persons interpreting Board statutes and rules.
SUBSTANTIVE POLICY STATEMENT
In the case of a system or component excluded from the scope of the home inspection, the source point or end of inspection locations shall be described as:
The excluded component from system to the point at which the feed is dedicated to that component or system.
As an example, the inspection of a swimming pool electrical feed may end at the point it exits the electrical panel if it is fed from the main electrical panel. If the swimming pool is fed by a sub-panel dedicated to components or systems excluded from the inspection scope, the sub-panel is not required to be inspected. Inspection of the water supply feeding the swimming pool automatic fill system may be excluded and not inspected to the point at which it exits the structure or other feed source.
