Some important provisions in the law found in the Georgia home inspector law located in Official Code of Georgia Annotated, Title 8, Chapter 3, Article 6, (Source: Georgia Laws 1994, p. 471, Section 1):
§ 8-3-330. "Home inspector" defined
As used in this article, the term "home inspector" means any person, except an employee of a county, municipality, or political subdivision while engaged in the performance of the duties of his or her employment, who, for consideration, inspects and reports on the condition of any home or single-family dwelling or the grounds, roof, exterior surface, garage or carport, structure, attic, basement or crawl space, electrical system, heating system, air-conditioning system, plumbing, on-site sewerage disposal, pool or hot tub, fireplace, kitchen, appliances, or any combination thereof for a prospective purchaser or seller.
Comment: This section limits the coverage of the home inspector law to those inspecting homes and single-family dwellings. This would presumably include condos and co-ops.
§ 8-3-331. Documentation required
Every home inspector shall provide to the person on whose behalf a home or single-family dwelling is being inspected a written document specifying:
(1) The scope of the inspection, including those structural elements, systems, and subsystems to be inspected;
(2) That the inspection is a visual inspection; and
(3) That the home inspector will notify in writing the person on whose behalf such inspection is being made of any defects noted during the inspection, along with any recommendation that certain experts be retained to determine the extent and corrective action necessary for such defects.
Comment: This section outlines what the written portion of a home inspection report must provide.
