Does My Home Inspector Have to Go Into My Attic?
No. Not in Texas if there is less than 30 inches of headroom. In other words, if the space in your attic is 29 inches, the normal height underneath a standard desk, then your home inspector does not have to go into that space in the attic.
What if there are massive leaks only in that small space?
Too bad, not gonna do it.
What if there are structural problems in that specific area?
Uh, uh, not gonna do it.
The Texas Administrative Code does not require the inspector to go into a space that even the average overweight male could enter easily on hands and knees.
(1) enter attics or unfinished spaces where openings are less than 22 inches by 30 inches or headroom is less than 30 inches;
