August 21, 2013 Dear Andrew Lietz, RE: Report No. 1018 2902 N Albany Ave Chicago, IL 60618 Thanks very much for choosing us to perform your home inspection. The inspection itself and the attached report comply with the requirements of the Standards of Practice of the American Society of Home Inspectors and Illinois State Home Inspector License Act. This document defines the scope of a home inspection. Clients sometimes assume that a home inspection will include many things that are beyond the scope. We encourage you to read the Standards of Practice so that you clearly understand what things are included in the home inspection and report. The report has been prepared for the exclusive use of our client. No use by third parties is intended. We will not be responsible to any parties for the contents of the report, other than the party named herein . The report is effectively a snapshot of the house, recording the conditions on a given date and time. Home inspectors cannot predict future behavior, and as such, we cannot be responsible for things that occur after the inspection. If conditions change, we are available to revisit the property and update our report. The report itself is copyrighted, and may not be used in whole or in part without our express written permission. Again, thanks very much for choosing us to perform your home inspection. Sincerely, Bart Wisniewski - IL Inspector 450-010522 on behalf of Citizen Architects Inc.

The most important part of the report is the Recommendations section. It is here that we identify any defects in the home and suggest improvements. LIMITING FACTORS The inspection is performed by a generalist, and in some cases, we will recommend specialists to further investigate conditions that we have identified. This is very similar to the doctor who is a general practitioner, identifying a physical condition and recommending further testing by a specialist. Home inspectors have a limited amount of time on site. Market conditions and inspection fees dictate that inspections typically run about three hours. As a result, there will be things that are not picked up by inspectors. We ask that you This Confidential Report is prepared exclusively by Citizen Architects Inc. for our Clients only.

understand and accept this. The inspection provides great value, and adds considerably to your understanding of the home. But it is not an insurance policy with a one-time only premium, no exclusions, no deductible and no limits. A home inspection does not include an examination for pests, rot or wood destroying insects. There are specialists available who can provide these services. Please read the report carefully, and feel free to ask any questions that you may have of the inspector. Again, we will remind you that a home inspection addresses visually accessible components of the home, and does not include destructive testing. We will operate mechanical systems with normal homeowner controls. Where there are many systems of a similar type and a home, we inspect a representative sample. For example, we do not inspect every electrical outlet, every piece of siding or every brick or every window. As you read the report, we encourage you to contact us with any questions about the report or the home.
