Question here from a soon to be new inspector. Regarding E & O insurance - do any of you home inspectors feel that a link exists between having E & O insurance and being sued by clients for something they say you missed in the inspection?
In a previous career, I never had insurance against claims or mistakes but after many years, decided to get it. Soon after I got it, I began getting claims against me. Nothing changed except I had liability insurance.
So I’m sure everyone understands my question: is having E & O insurance setting myself up for claims of negligence or mistakes or missed items on a home inspection? Can you inspect without it (dare you?)
