Enlighten Home Inspections, LLC is pleased to provide you with this home inspection report. This report is intended to
provide you with an evaluation of the general condition of the home on the date of the inspection. Please read the entire
report. The areas of the home that were inspected include: Structure, Exterior, Plumbing, Electric, HVAC (Heating,
Ventilation and Air Conditioning), Interior and Kitchen. For condominiums and cooperatives, common areas are NOT
inspected and are not part of a standard report. The structure and exterior are considered common areas in condominiums
and cooperatives.

The focus of the inspection was on major problems or concerns. A major problem or concern is a component that is
significantly deficient and would potentially cost $500.00 to repair or replace, or posses a threat to life or health. These
items, if any, are contained in this report and can be easily identified by locating an "X" in the "MA" (Major) column in each
section of this report. Look for the description of the problem or concern in the corresponding explanation below the
columns. Major problems or concerns can also be accessed by looking directly at the "MAJOR" Summary in this report.

During the course of identifying major problems or concerns, it is nearly inevitable that minor problems or concerns will be
located. A minor problem or concern is a component that is deficient and would more than likely cost less than $500.00 to
repair or replace. Minor problems or concerns can be easily identified by locating an "X" in the "m" (minor) column in each
section of this report. Look for the description of the problem or concern in the corresponding explanation below the
columns. Minor problems or concerns can also be accessed by looking directly at the "MINOR SUMMARY" in this report. It
is important to note that this inspection is not an all inclusive inspection and not every minor defect is noted in this report.

It is my sincere hope that you find this report and our services to be beneficial. Thank you for choosing Enlighten Home
Inspections, LLC for your home inspection needs.

Regards,
