One of the things my lawyer (a good friend) told me when I started was never to do an inspection for an owner on a house that was sale because it could imply a warranty to the buyer. Meaning I could be liable to the new and old owner if they found something after they moved in.
Has anyone addressed this issue? Maybe in their contract?

I like the idea's presented and think there could be a good marketing angle for me too. Obviously want to protect myself too.
One thing that comes to mind is that if we did miss something the liability is probably there anyway? Guess I am going to have to call him up and have a talk with him.
