Structure Inventory

3 CEUs

Home inventory professionals are known for documenting the contents of a home or business. Often during a home inventory project, the service provider is asked about carpet, flooring, built-in bookcases, and attached fixtures. These items typically are not included in a personal property inventory because they are, by definition, part of the structure.

There are times when one needs to have documentation of a commercial or residential building and its fixtures. These reports detail the condition of the building interior and exterior, as well as additional buildings on the property, along with other structures such as walls, fences, etc. This is called a Structure Inventory.
