My most recent inspection: client backed out after my inspection, partly because of the report and because of resale financing issues they will run into that I said they should double check with their agent. They did, my hunch was right, they backed out, contract terminated.
The house ended up being a big pile anyways. THAT being said I got a call from the listing agent cause she had some “questions” about the report. I said
Me: sure I’ll be more than happy to talk to you about those things as long as you have written permission from my client to do so."
Listing Agent: the contract is terminated. The buying agent is required to send the report to me and I now have the right to ask you about the report.
Me: I know my regulations about my contract with my client but let me look that over again and I’ll call you back.
Listing agent: ok bye - sounded frustrated.
My agreements say that the reports are no longer valid when the contract is terminated or the purchase has been completed. I also have legally have to talk to this LA about the report but if I do I still want written permission.
The right or wrong thing to do?
