I received word from my prospect that she decided to go with another home inspector that is also a general contractor for $650 and he would credit the inspection fee if she gave him the repair work.
I know this violates California Law under the business and professions code. This contractors name does not appear on ASHI, CREIA, or NACHI's listings. I informed my client that it is an unfair business practice to do repair work on home's that an inspector inspects for 12 months. She is going to check with her partner and get back to me- she is an attorney, by the way.
What recourse do I have against this contractor?
