Hold harmless agreement

Hello inspector people,
I’m a new member and have a quick question. Could that guy who missed the tankless water heater defect protected himself by a hold harmless agreement ?? Or what is a hold harmless agreement. Thanks in advance…John

No! He missed it .

Thank you. The job looked pitch patch from the image. He should have caught it.

The Hold Harmless Agreement in the NACHI contract is to absolve Realtors from any claim the buyer may have against the home inspector… It indemnifies the Realtor from litigation caused by the home inspector. Of course a judge would have to agree.
