I received a call from a client who was considering hiring me to inspect her new home the other day. She asked if I provided a “warranty” and I explained to her that a home inspection is not a warranty of the home, but that often there are home warranty companies that could provide a plan. (like AHS, etc)
She explained that another inspector said that he included the warranty at no additional charge. If anything breaks it is covered. Well we all know that would never happen.
The good news is that I was able to book the inspection regardless of the absence of this warranty, but it got me wondering what she may have been misinformed about, or simply confused regarding.
Doing a google search I could only come up with the following as a possible answer to what she was referring to, but is is called a guarantee.
Does any one have a copy of what this “limited” guarantee covers. I suspect that it is significantly limited.
I guess I just want to know what is is really being offered, so that in the future I have my facts straight, when in competition with another inspector claiming that the home is covered by their guarantee.
I will try to find out if HM is even the franchise she was talking too.
Thanks for any info.
