I was recently being sued by a past client who went past his due diligence inspection period and lost his money in escrow. About $5000 of it. His anger lead him to come up with the idea to bring up a law suit against the realtor and myself claiming it was our fault. A completely merit-less accusation. I ran this By Nick and Ben Gromicko for their input on how long the max turn around time should be on reports. Nick Gromicko even offered to fly down as a witness for my case!
I went to the pretrial hearing yesterday. I was the only one to show up without an attourney. But I came prepaired with my signed copy of the InterNACHI inspection agreement and the Homegauge “All Events” list from my uploaded report. It documents when a report was uploaded as well as when and what I.P Address accessed it for the buyer, realtor and any third party. The InterNACHI inspection agreement worked like a champ. I made a motion to be dismissed from the case and the Plaintiff’s attorney agreed, after I highlighted 4 points of the agreement the buyer had defaulted in. Also they all agreed 3 business days is substantial time to get a report out, I got it out in less than 2 business days. I’ve also been cleared of all allegations through the FL Dep. of Business and Reg. It’s all on the buyers realtor now for not keeping track of the deadline period.
Thanks again, InterNACHI rocks!
