    Hi Cristhian,

    I have always wondered. What is a "four point inspection"? Ok... maybe not "always". But whenever I hear the term.

    Gunnar,

    A "four point inspection" is a Florida thing.

    They were started by the insurance companies as a way to reduce their risks for the houses they insured.

    It used to be like this (but I've been retired for 10 years now, and I never did them even when I was in the business): Roof, electrical (panel), plumbing (water heater), AHU and CU.

    Old roof - replace it no insurance.

    Fuse panel or FPE panel (might now include Zinsco panels) - replace it or no insurance.

    Water heater old - replace it or no insurance.

    AHU/CU old - replace it or no insurance.

    What the market cannot do ... insurance companies can - or no insurance (and no insurance, no mortgage, no house).

    Hi Jerry,

    Thanks. We briefly had something like that here in CA. I remember a 2 page report that insurance companies wanted done by home inspectors. Rate the systems: Good, fair, poor. My problem was that they did not provide a metric. How exactly was I supposed to rate an electrical system? Was a "good" electrical system one that would not shock you or burn your house down, a "fair" electrical system one that would only occasionally shock you and a "poor" one cause instantaneous death?

    I didn't do them either and I don't know anyone who did. I think they went away. At least, I haven't heard of one in years.
