The Pre-Inspection Questionnaire includes sample questions for inspectors to pose to the person(s) with the most knowledge of the property, as identified by your client (typically, the building’s owner, manager, client or tenant).

Depending on how your client would like to handle the research portion of the inspection and who the person with the most knowledge is, you can include a blank Questionnaire with the Notice to Building Occupants Letter, or use these questions during personal interviews and fill out the Questionnaire for the individual(s) yourself.

If you fill out the Questionnaire for the person being interviewed, you should note on the Questionnaire the method used for completing it, whether in-person, by phone, or via email. Copies of the completed Questionnaire should be included in your inspection report.
