The inspector will bring all the necessary tools and equipment to perform the inspection. However, if the Buyer wishes to have an active participation in the process, it is recommended that the Buyer bring a note pad and pen to write down observations and comments by the inspector for later discussion. A tape measure might also come in handy to measure clearances and dimensions such as the opening for a refrigerator. Although not necessary, some Buyers may want to follow the inspector into attics and crawl spaces. Should this be the case, the Buyer should bring a flashlight and wear jeans or work clothes and have a mask. Because of liability and insurance concerns, most inspectors will not allow Buyers to walk the roof, attic or other areas that would place the Buyer in harm’s way.
