Thanks for posting. The language on the last page is very interesting. The 1st paragraph on the last page REQUIRES the inspector to CERTIFY the conditions of all systems. What exactly does that mean?
The 2nd paragraph requires dates for all updates- AND WHO DID THE UPDATES. This provision is setting the inspector up for failure. Any agent or underwriter can use this provision (if we or the owner are unable to determine who did an update) to deny an application for insurance. Of course, the inspector will get the blame for this- unless of course- the inspection firm is one of the “preferred providers”.
The 3rd paragraph requires all agents to review the report for completeness before submitting to underwriting. If any “required” information is missing- such as “who did the updates”, then the agent cannot submit the report to underwriting. Again, the inspector will be blamed for this. Based on this form, be prepared for rejected reports and many follow up phone calls from the agent.
Being the cynic that I am, this may be by design to drive the retail inspector out of the Citiizens inspection scheme. Of course, the “preferred providers” will be exempt these provisions because they have “quality assurance” programs in place.
