Hi, if you read this survey: http://www2.gov.bc.ca/local/haveyoursay/Docs/home_inspector_licensing_consult_report.pdf
The part about “Realtor Relationship”
The vast majority (92 per cent) of home inspectors report they have not paid a client referral fee to a realtor to obtain work, in keeping with the Codes of Ethics of the four home inspector associations. A small number of inspectors reported paying referral fees to realtors, despite the practice being contrary to the codes of ethics of all of the home inspector associations.
8% admitted paying for referral, what % of those that admitted not paying are lying?
We can all stick our head in the sand and pretend nothing is happening but the fact is that it happens more than we think. Stronger regulations will not stop any deals done under the table.
What do you figure is the solution? Can’t stop agents from referring inspectors, it will hurt to many. I guess all we can do is accept it’s going on.
What do you figure?
Shame on me!
