My client this morning wanted me to inspect the dock as the pilings were rotted where the wood sits in the water, the tide was low. She knew it was excluded from the general home inspection but wanted it in the report anyway. Does anybody out there who inspects them have a general disclaimer I can borrow? I took pictures of the rotting wood and put into my report that the inspector is not a specialist in this area and recommends further evaluation by a licensed marine contractor and repair or replace as needed. There was also a boat lift that had the sellers boat on it and did not test it and disclaimed it.
Just looking for a disclaimer for the dock and boat lift.
