It has been a quite a while since I have done a walk and talk consultation. I try to avoid these, but I have a special circumstance that this makes the most sense. I cannot locate my sample agreement for this. Can anyone point me to the copy of this? Is it somewhere in Internachi’s Library? Thanks.
I was asked to do one of these recently (pre-listing) because the sellers agent “didn’t want to know about any deficiencies and didn’t want to have to disclose them in a report if they weren’t fixed”.
I said the least I was willing to do was a “4point”. So, I essentially did what would be a 4 point.
One can make any scope of agreement they and the client want PRIOR to the inspection process. See th SOP: https://www.nachi.org/sop.htm
