Any areas not inspected for any reason will be identified within the report , these may be , but are not limited to areas such as TV or telecoms which are not available or connected at the time of connection

The NBI inspector will report upon the main aspects of the property to an accepted benchmark quality standard , normally the NHBC standard (in more than 96.3% of all inspections undertaken which represent good custom and practice within the industry) both internally and externally, referring to individual warranty technical standards where applicable/necessary, building regulations and on occasion making recommendations for improvement
Other warranty company standards may and will differ from the NHBC standards and clients who hold such warranties should seek advice from NBI and the onsite inspector as to the differences between such warranties and how this may affect them

Where applicable, recommendations to the gardens, boundaries and any potential environmental impacts may considered and comments/questions raised of the builder within the report, in addition to any potential for further investigation by others arising from the inspection will be identified.
