Why Choose Good Counsel for Your Home Inspection

No Cut Corners
Fast Turnaround

I know you're on a schedule. That's why I guarantee you will get your inspection report in 24 to 48 hours. Your condo inspection should't hold you up. Digital reporting also allows you to take your report anywhere, and give it to anyone you want.

My condo inspections are performed not only to NJ State Regulations, but also to the more rigorous InterNACHI Standards of Practice. I also guarantee you that you will receive my Uncompromised Honest Opinion 100% of the time.

A Higher Standard

I provide you with a neatly organized report complete with lots of photos and explanation. This way its easy for you to understand and explain to others too.

Professional Reporting

Sometimes household appliances can have manufacturing defects which can be dangerous. That's why a RecallChek is always included with your home inspection. RecallChek will tell you whether there are any existing  recalls on your installed appliances, and set you up to inform you of future recalls.

RecallChek Always Included

It can be hard to get away from your job to attend a full home inspection. That's why I offer home inspection appointment times morning and afternoon every day of the week.

Inspector Credentials

NJ Licensed Home Inspector

Home inspectors have to be licensed in NJ. The Department of Consumer Affairs makes sure that inspectors are experienced, and continue their education. You can also check the NJ license verification site to be sure that your inspector is licensed.

Certified Radon Tech.

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can build up inside closed structures. Luckily, New Jersey trains and licenses technicians to test for radon so that you don't have to put yourself or your family at risk unnecessarily.

Radon Measurement Technician Certification # MET13499

Certified WDO Inspector

In NJ there is no licensing for termite and wood destroying insect inspection. Anyone can do one, but not just anyone has the experience to do the inspection the right way. I am a NJDEP licensed commercial pesticide applicator 7B and InterNACHI Certified WDO Inspector.
