LIMITED REPORT
An inspection report limited to a specific portion(s) of a structure shall be labeled as “limited.” It must include a diagram of the inspected area, a notation indicating the person/entity requesting the limited report, and recommendations for further inspection.

MECHANICS LIEN LAW
Under the California Mechanics Lien Law, any structural pest control company which contracts to do work for you, and any contractor, subcontractor, laborer, supplier, or other person who helps to improve your property, but is not paid for his or her work or supplies, has a right to enforce a claim against your property. To protect yourself and your property against a possible mechanics lien, you may want to: 1. Require that your contractor supply you with a payment and performance bond (a guarantee that all work and proper payments will be completed), and file it with a copy of the contract at the County Recorder’s Office. 2. Require your contractor to provide you with unconditional lien releases signed by each material supplier, subcontractor, and laborer involved before making payment on any completed phase of the project. To protect yourself under this option, you must be certain that all material suppliers, subcontractors, and laborers have signed.
