Since the Client is asking for your Services for only 8 hours, charge for whatever your 8 hours would normally be worth otherwise.
I certainly would not use your standard reporting method. I would put in writing exactly what systems are to be inspected, how this was to be accomplished, and have this document signed.
A mammoth job by any means.
You will no doubt only be able to partially assess the exterior of the buildings, electrical, plumbing, roofs etc. Take lots of pictures. Document your limitations and have it signed before you start.
When we do this type of inspection we usually call it a deficit reporting inspection. Much is missed because of limited time for a full report.
These are usually not the easiest of inspections.
Try to sell the TEAM approach.
