Recently was contacted to do a new home inspection. Builder had no problem with it so long as I (and my home inspection) was not part of the final walk through inspection between the builder and the buyer, that I accomplished it the same day as the final walk through inspection, that their superintendent had to be present, and that a copy of my report had to be given to them (builder) upon completion of my inspection. Have done multiple inspections of this type and had no problem.
Buyer was also wanting me to walk around with her during the builders walk through inspection to make sure things were done “Right”, Builder said no, my inspection was not part of his and that anything I might find had no bearing because the house and any defects found were already covered by a full 1 year builders warranty and that their inspection was only to introduce the house, and its operation / functions to the buyer. Buyer and builder are still in a little battle over issue.
What problems / methods have some of you used in this situation to do the contracted inspection but also meet the requirements of the client.
