What is a TREC REI 7-6 Inspection and Why is it Important?
In the State of Texas, the Texas Real Estate Commission, or TREC, regulates all home inspections. The TREC REI 7-6 inspection is a professional property inspection report conducted by an impartial party for purposes of evaluating certain elements of a home prior to a real estate transaction. To ensure consistency, any inspector licensed by TREC must use the standard inspection format for their home inspection reports and must comply with the standards of practice that define the minimum levels of inspection that are required by the State of Texas.
In Texas, home inspectors will check the basic features of the home. The TREC REI 7-6 Inspection, also referred to as a Structural/Mechanical inspection, will cover the major structural and mechanical components of a house from the roof to the foundation, basement, and crawlspace.
