Was asked by a mortgage company if I performed FHA inspections and what I charged fror them.
The usual stuff was asked. You know; well, septic, termite, etc. The only thing they asked for which I was a bit different for me was a "site map" d.sepicting the distance between well and septic ( I usually call it out, but don't typically draw it), and the need to perform testing for leaks in buried fuel oil tanks. The latter is something I am not currently trained or equipped to perform.
So, does anyone out there do FHA inspections, and is it worth it for me to get involved? Like, are these inspections typically supposed to be cheaper than a stasndard inspection? If so, by what magnitude? What about well testing? BActeria and quality naturally, but how detailed do they look for as to the design, pressure and flow characteristics? And what about the fuel tank thing? What kind of training and tools are required? And what about liability?!!?!!
