These inspections are usually minimum inspections but are required by certain cities, prior to listing the property.

Ususally a licensed evaluator must complete these evaluations and provide a disclosure report before any single-family house, duplex, townhouse, or first-time condo conversion can be shown to prospective buyers.

These housing evaluations, sometimes also known as the disclosure report, must be displayed on the property so potential buyers can look at it.

Ususally a re-inspection must be done after any required repairs have been completed. This is separate from the initial evaluation.
