I fyou willl email your fax number, I will send send you a copy of mine. It is pretty simple, I use a highlighter and mark the items as I do the inspection..a very big time saver, besides I dislike writing everything out in long hand. The back of the form has the sketch on it and any additional notes as I do my measurements.

Like many, I use the first page of the URAR on one side, and the grid sheet on the other side for the sketch.

The most efficient way is to come up with your very own memorized default for every room in any house, then only make shorthand comments on a blank sheet of paper regarding NON-default items.

Works for me AND it's totally simple.

Base your whole setup on an FHA appraisal and you can easily perform the most complicated house with the Owner in tow describing her latest innovcations and STILL get out of the house in 15-20 minutes PLUS extra time involved in turning on the heating plant and air conditioning (as appropriate).

The best part my system is it's a NO-FAIL system.

OHHHH, always go through a house in the exact same order regardless of the style of the house. Of course, there are exceptions, BUT exceptions are always just that -- exceptions. Do not let exceptions impinge on the RULE!

I posted my inspection form on a previous post. I'm not saying that it is the endall inspection form, but I like using it. It is basically a blank URAR, but with a little more room for notes. If any of you have any comments or suggestions I would love to hear them.

By the way, the last time that I posted this, I received a few emails saying they could not open the file, but I never had any problems. If for any reason you can't, I'll email it to you.

I have an inspection form that I use. The form has everything on the URAR. The sketch I do on graph paper and write in notes about the rooms.
