Ladies and Gentlemen;
I was flabbergasted today by not being recognized as a Certified Inspector to provide a Home Inspection by the Lender of the Buyer for two reasons, never mind the fact that I am a Registered PE! 1) That I am not a Construction Contractor 2) As a result of that, they are concerned in the event of Errors & Omissions that they could not recover damages. This is the first time in over 15 years of inspections that I have ever run across this. I told the Lender that I wish was really true, and that way I would not have to pay $4,000 plus for E&O & Liability Insurance.
It appears that this lender, is not aware, or does not believe, in Home Inspectors!
I sent him a copy of California's Business and Professions Code, Section 7195-7199 outlining the duties and responsibilities of a California Home Inspector.
Right now I am so pissed off, that in all reality I cannot think straight enough for a come back. Per perhaps some of you could give me a helping hand, and/or suggestions and advice. One hell of a Christmas Present.
Actually, if I think about it, perhaps there is more than meets the eye here, and it would be best to walk away from this?? ![icon_cry.gif](upload://r83gSGUzNOacIqpjVReDwcR83xZ.gif)
