    Excellent advice.  I would add or interject one additional step:  namely, request an exit interview to balance and/or mitigate any negative findings.

  2. I agree entirely with this advice and the comment recommending a concluding conference at the end of the inspection. I have been dealing with these kinds of problems for more than 30 years.

    These are good pieces  of advice to which I would add – always treat the inspector(s) in a reasonable businesslike manner.  While this may be hard to do under certain circumstances, there is no benefit in antagonizing the inspector(s) that may only work harder to conjure up issues.  The closing conference/exit interview suggested by the other readers is an excellent point.
