And “legally”… that is exactly how it should be! It’s all about consistency. Last thing you need is to be dragged into a courtroom, and the opposing attorney wanting to know WHY this time you chose to go beyond the SOP… or even worse, why you DID NOT do what you have done hundreds of times before, for other clients??
Nothing wrong with exceeding the SOP, you just need to be consistent and do it all the time!
we have an inspection on Monday where the client asked if he could bring my states SOP requirements with him. I told him absolutely but I didn’t get into the fact we typically try to always go beyond those requirements. I’ve never had anyone ask this before. Anyone ever get this question from a client.
No, but I am an incredibly thorough inspector, so it is literally impossible for me to miss something! Just put it out of your mind, (don’t dwell on it, causes distractions and mistakes), and just do the awesome inspection that you always do! That should impress the hell out of your client, and he won’t even remember he brought the SOP to reference.
WHOA Better remove that & watch out buddy or you’ll be in BIG doo doo soon!
