The checklist follows our home inspection software template

If you like the free checklist, you’ll love our software. The checklist follows the software template verbatim and you can save time by doing reports on-site with your phone or tablet.

While inspecting a home, it’s very important to have a systematic approach to the inspection process. Because there are so many items to inspect, taking notes from a home inspection checklist while on-site increases efficiency and reduces the chance of error. You can download our free home inspection checklist in several different formats and customize it to fit your needs. Simply download and print the checklist, then carry it on a clipboard and fill in the blanks while you’re inspecting a home.

Many inspectors like to fill out the handwritten checklist on-site and then return to their home or office to fill out the report via their home inspection software. EZ Home Inspection Software comes with a default report that is made to follow the checklist. For a more professional, typed report with photos, you can use your handwritten notes from the checklist to quickly fill out sections in the software. Another method of inspecting is to complete the full report on-site using a touchscreen tablet.

The list contains headers for all the major areas of the home that should be inspected. Rather than using just a basic list, it’s a good idea to follow the InterNACHI or ASHI standards of practice for a much more detailed list of areas to inspect.
