I got this agreement from HIP’s software and obviously did not do my due diligence in reading through it before deciding to use it. The only section I added is #10, what are your thoughts on that? I think I will use InterNACHI’s agreement instead of this one after all the holes in it you have pointed out to me!
You just told me the exact opposite. Furthermore, Who must mark them as such? Are you telling your client to mark them as such or are you explaining to your client that you have no choice but to mark them as such?
I wouldn’t waste contract space telling your client they have to assure you that you can enter the property to inspect the property. You are already getting that assurance by virtue of them hiring you and scheduling the inspection. Overkill IMHO.
Over-overkill. What damages could someone claim in the 1 in a million chance that you didn’t have permission to inspect the property anyway? That you peeked at their furnace filter? No need for this.
So not only are you inspecting to the “Sandia Home Inspection Standards of Practice” (which I’ve never heard of) instead of an industry standard, you don’t even furnish a copy? Your client has to request this unknown SOP separately?
We’re only on #7 of 11 and we’re agreeing to have read something and accepting it?
Also, who is “I” in this sentence? “I” meaning you Chris Franklin? That’s how it reads.
Also, how does one "accept the Terms and Conditions of an inspection? An inspection doesn’t have terms and conditions. An inspection contract does.
Also, you mention a fourth secret document “The Waiver Conditions.” What is that and where is it? Where are all these documents you’ve mentioned?: Items subject to disclosure, The Order Form, The Sandi Home Inspection Standards of Practice and now The Waiver Conditions.
Makes no sense. Why has “… for the purpose of inspecting the subject home.” has been added to that paragraph? How can the client’s agreement to hold someone harmless be for the purpose of inspecting the subject’s home? One doesn’t need to hold someone harmless for the purpose of performing an inspection.
Also, you can’t exonerate someone from a loss. You can exonerate them from blame. You can exonerate them from an obligation. You can reimburse them for a loss.
