Disclaimer I need in my software

Hoping I can get some help. Can anyone tell me what disclaimers I should put in my software to cover my a__. (Best interests)
Thank you

NO disclaimers in your software will legally cover your arse!
Only the Disclaimers contained within your AGREEMENT/CONTRACT and are SIGNED by your Client are legally enforceable!!
Talk with your Attorney!!


Thank you for replying sir.

Welcome to our forum, Corey!..Enjoy! :smile:

Here is InterNACHI’s agreement that may give you some ideas…heck use the agreement. InterNachi spent a lot of time and money fine tuning it, legally.

And, below are many more documents that may be helpful:


Welcome Corey Happy Inspecting!!!


Welcome! I’m not going to reply a damn thing that helps you but if I welcome more people than the next guy I might get an award or some shit.

What the hell is going on?!

Everything (disclaimer) that your clients should know about what you cannot/ will not do should be in your Pre-Inspection Agreement.
When you encounter a property specific limitations (e.g. couldn’t access window to inspect it because the slob of an occupant has so much shit piled in the corner…) should go into your report in the proper section required by your state or otherwise SOP.

Perfect. Thank you soo much

Corey I add limitations in my report. This may include that the air conditioning is not operated if the outside temperature is below 65° for the last 24 hours. It may also include verbiage saying that the roof is inspected for general condition. The inspection does not determine life expectancy and does not include television and antennas or satellite dishes. I put these in a header section at the beginning of the sections for said items. I don’t care what others say about the inspection agreement this is a nice way to remind your client about the limitations of a visual inspection while they are reading your report.

Here’s an example:

All good advice. You will need to consider the laws of your state if there are any. Exclusions and limitations in the contract protect you in court, but your state may require other statements be specifically provided to your clients. In MD the law says:

Notice the last item - this means contract!


(a) A licensed home inspector shall give to each person for whom the licensee performs a home inspection for compensation or to the person’s representative, a written report that states:

(1) the scope and the exclusions of the inspection;

(2) the conditions observed during the home inspection that are subject to the adopted standards of practice and code of ethics approved by the Commission;

(3) the license number of the licensee; and

(4) a disclosure in 14–point bold type that includes the following statements:

(i) “An inspection is intended to assist in the evaluation of the overall condition of a building. The inspection is based on observation of the visible and apparent condition of the building and its components on the date of the inspection”;

(ii) “The results of this home inspection are not intended to make any representation regarding latent or concealed defects that may exist, and no warranty or guaranty is expressed or implied”;

(iii) “If your home inspector is not a licensed structural engineer or other ` professional whose license authorizes the rendering of an opinion as to structural integrity of a building or the condition of its components or systems, you may wish to seek the professional opinion of a licensed structural engineer or other professional regarding any possible defects or other observations set forth in this report”; and
iv) “Only home inspections performed by Maryland licensed home inspectors will be recognized as a valid home inspection under a real estate contract”.

(b) The licensee shall give the person or the person’s representative the report:

(1) by the date set in a written agreement by the parties to the home inspection; or

(2) within 7 business days after the home inspection was performed, if no date was set in a written agreement by the parties to the home inspection.

C) Any limitation of the liability of the licensee for any damages resulting from the report on the home inspection shall be agreed to in writing by the parties to the home inspection prior to the performance of the home inspection.

Thank you sir

You appear to be fairly new to this so let me help you. The inspection agreement will not list the limitations the OP referenced. The agreement should reference the SOP, now here is a better description of limitations. Best of luck with your new endevure JJ😂

You may want to put at the very top of your report some verbiage that says read the entire report in its entirety very prominently. And at the inspection emphasize that the report is the report, not the walk through. Always refer to the report. You would be surprised the amount of people that do not read the report.

Yup… 25+ years new… unlike your 9 months following your failure as a plumber in 3+ states like you!!
I have made a successful career inspecting after idjits such as yourself.
Let us know your next visit in court. I would love to be there for the show!!


I have no idea what your talking about. You have never followed me on any job nor been to any place I’ve been. Never have met you. Nor you me. You attitude and personality are just charming. You just felt the need to cut me down to make yourself feel better. I believe this is called a textbook bully.
I feel sorry for you.
Whatever anger issues you have, I will not have any of it.
Pls redirect any negative comments elsewhere
