This is such a mess.
Last Wed I did a four point where the home was a little short of a full cup of water (roof leaked a little)
I told my client that if her insurance co did not accept my report that I would refund my fee because right now we do not know what insurance co will take what. She did not know who the co was because it was going thought a general agent. I talked with her agent and he did not know what they would accept.
Now how can we take money in good faith for a job that we do not know if it will be accepted by the inc Co??
In short I have never been rejected but I have some properties that in my opinion needed repair before they needed insurance. In those cases I have come back later at NC after repairs have been made.
I do a 4 point inspection with a home inspection if requested for an extra $50.00 if I do not have to go back to the home later — The date I use is the date of the inspection.
This ICC / insurance issue will pass in time like all issues of the moment, but for now it sure is a good BB subject.
The real issue is not ICC but the Florida insurance mess – and now we are going to do wind inspections for $150.00 where a home owner can get $5000.00!!! Do we see a problem here??? (The contractors like the inspectors must be on the Florida “approved list”)
BTW how is it that two companies that have little background in HI get a state contract worth big $$ to do inspections??? One day of training and you are good to go. Oh yes you have to pay them $$ to get trained. I wonder what the state is paying them??
I want to be the inspector that checks the inspectors for taking side $$$ to say that someone needs a new garage door.
We have to get the government out of the business of business including insurance. This is not their job
Too much coffee again
Oh I forgot – I am on Greg’s bad list because I say little of value - Right now I am seeing little value in an answer to a question by saying “How many ways would you like for us to answer this question for you” (who is US??)
Right now we have ICC and other issues on the same plate with insurance and it is just not so.
This sound like a job for the front office of NACHI - Nick is on the board or something of another Florida inspection association — thus a good spoke person for our profession – so lets kick this up stairs and get some answers before we spend more time spinning our wheels in the sand.
