And “takin chances” is exactly what I call it too.
All that world recognition of the organization that piecemealed (from hundreds of special interests) that goofy, mis-titled ASTM Commercial SOP that you claimed to have abided by (impossible to abide by BTW) when you performed that commercial inspection for the plaintiff won’t save your a$s in court.
What are you planning to tell the Judge? “Your honor, rule in my favor because more people have heard of ASTM than InterNACHI”
Please, don’t make me laugh.
Remember though. Whatever SOP you tell your client you are abiding by… you’d better abide by! Have you read ASTM’s SOP? You are really going to calculate repair costs?
Anyway… The document that would have kept you out of court to begin with is the clearly written InterNACHI Commercial SOP. It is straightforward. It tells you what to do. You tell your client what your are going to do it. Then you go out and do it. It provides your client with the information that is likely more valuable to him/her than the fee you have to charge for acquiring it for him/her. A win/win. It is beautiful.

Or not. I don’t care. Try that “Bushart’s most name recognition” defense strategy of yours. ROTFLMAO :roll: Who knows, maybe you’ve come up with somethin’ there that the legal profession hasn’t thought of yet.
