assurance and wisdom
for your family and home.
You’ve spent an incredible amount of time researching… Visiting many different homes over the course of many months… Working with your trusted realtor in searching and finding the perfect home for you and your family.
Now, you’ve finally found THE ONE.
The school is perfect. The neighborhood is fantastic. The price is reasonable. You and your family love the home. You’ve hoped and prayed about it and feel that this is it.
You’ve put in a bid on your home and it’s been accepted – now the home is under contract and pending. You are so excited! You’ve driven by your dream home, looked at it on Google Maps and already figured out the fastest way to get to work everyday.
You’ve even imagined how you will be arranging all of your furniture inside the family room. This is a very exciting time!
Now… you need an experienced, knowledgeable, honest, trustworthy and unbiased home inspector to help you find out if everything is okay. Will your family be safe? Are there any unforeseen problems with the home?
We are here to help you find out.
A thorough home inspection depends heavily on an inspector's own effort. And, unlike most professionals you hire, you probably won't meet us until our appointment. If you honor us by permitting us to inspect your new home, we guarantee that we'll give you our very best effort. We'll inspect your home as if it were our own.
This we promise you.

"My wife and I moved from PA to Orlando and knew very little about the building codes and regulations of our new state. We are so thankful we had Cezar and Angeline to inspect our new home and answer all our questions. Their attention to detail and care with their work is so impressive, they truly treat every home they inspect as if it was their own. They spent several hours checking literally all aspects of the home and then quickly and diligently prepared a full color easy to read report that for us as homeowners is priceless. This report will serve as a great guide for me as the new homeowner for things I can do to improve and make my home last as long as possible. They did this all for us while were still in PA but they kept us updated every step of the way via phone calls and emails. I really can't say enough how much I appreciate them and how I intend to use them for every future house I purchase. Moving is stressful, we all know it, but Cezar and Angeline really care and have provided us wonderful peace of mind for our future home." ~ Nate & Angela L.
"Many thanks to you Cezar and Angeline for the home inspection that you did on our behalf. You were both professional, knowledgeable, personable and very detailed. You inspected the property with organization and precision and we couldn't have asked for a better company to make sure that we were making a good investment. We received our report the same day as advertised and it was well put together and easy to read. I would recommend Prodigal Home inspections to anyone that I know needing a home inspection. May God bless you and your family." ~Denisia V.
"Cezar, Thank you so much for your quick turnaround on the home inspection report! Being a first time home buyer has been a very stressful process, but you have been a bright spot along the way! Your attention to detail and thoroughness was very much appreciated and you eased my worries by explaining your findings throughout the inspection process. Thank you so much for the part you have played in my journey, and I will definitely recommend your services to everyone I can think of in the future!
Thank you again." ~Lorna B.

PRODIGAL HOMES Inspection + Consulting offers professional rental property inspections on behalf of tenants, landlords and property managers throughout Central Florida. Assessments of rental properties are important for all parties involved so that the condition of the investment is well documented before, during and after tenancy. The inspection provides a professional third-party assessment before damage deposits are collected or retained when damage has occurred.
We are Florida Licensed Home Inspectors providing Property Managers, Landlords, Owners, Investors, Tenants, Insurance Companies, and Lenders necessary protection at a reasonable price. Our reports put you into a solid defendable position should problems arise.
We offer the following services:
This inspection is performed before the property is listed for rent. It begins the documentation process and protects all parties prior to the tenant entering into a lease, an owner hiring a property management company, or a property manager representing an investor’s property.
We will perform a thorough inspection of the interior and exterior, whether occupied or vacant. We will provide a detailed report delivered electronically with pictures, including a full description of the property condition, appliances, systems, and various rooms. The report will also include suggested property management improvements to enhance the rental value, notify of any systems that need attention, and identify any potential safety hazards for the occupants.
This inspection is performed prior to tenant moving into the property. Most professional property managers find this to be the most important inspection in the rental process. It serves to document the condition of the property prior to occupancy and ideally is performed right before the tenant takes over the property. Pictures and video is taken so that everyone knows exactly how the home looks so that when the tenant moves out, it can be determined if they have left any damage behind. Transparency is important because if there is a defect identified prior to the tenant moving in, they should not be held accountable for it.
The Pre-Occupancy Inspection Report should be read and signed by both the Landlord (or Property Manager) and the Tenant, showing evidence that everyone agrees on the condition of the property.
This inspection is performed while the tenant is living on the property. This type of inspection protects the investment and identifies any potential safety hazards that the tenants may encounter. Additionally, it professionally documents the condition and maintenance habits of the tenants. Most importantly, it can identify any necessary maintenance or repairs that may be required before becoming a major issue (this might include catching a roof leak before extensive damage occurs, making sure pets are not causing damage, or checking that the tenant is regularly changing the AC air filter.)
The Mid-Occupancy Inspection report can hold tenants accountable, uncover illegal activities, document tenant maintenance habits, or prevent deposit disputes.
This inspection is performed after the tenant has moved out of the property. It is compared to the Pre-Occupancy Inspection Report and documents any damage that has occurred while the tenant was living on the property. The benefits of this inspection include: eliminating deposit disputes, justifying deposit retention, preventing litigation, identifying damage, and recommending repairs to resolve any damage found. It is important to differentiate normal wear and tear versus damage.

The above image was based on a study done by the National Association of Home Builders & Bank of America. Obviously there is no hard and fast guide as to how long home systems and components will last. Therefore, we have also included an expected lifespan chart compiled by InterNACHI - please see below.
The following chart created by InterNACHI details the predicted life expectancy of appliances, products, materials, systems and components for homes in the state of Florida. While many components and systems in homes located in Florida and the surrounding area have service life expectancies that are comparable to those anywhere else in the U.S., those items that are regularly exposed to the elements, including saltwater, wind, sun and heat, are particularly vulnerable to premature failure compared to items installed in homes located elsewhere. These guidelines attempt to address those differences.
