I understand that the InterNACHI member shall not have any disclosed or undisclosed conflict of interest with the client. What if the “client” is the HI? Unless the lending institution requires an independent inspection to be completed, is there any ethical issue for a HI to complete their own home inspection?
I would not expect this to be ethical if the HI is the Seller, but as the Buyer, this would seem to be acceptable.
Thoughts and opinions?
