Just curious on this one. According to the SOP it’s a mandatory for all home inspectors to inspect crawl spaces unless a safety concern arises. However, I have seen where inspectors will advertise that they will check this area for an extra nominal fee? Is this practice legal since it’s already mandatory according to the SOP unless it’s unsafe for you to do so?
