I have found P2P franchisees to be less than thorough. I have been retained several times by disgruntled purchasers who made the mistake of retaining P2P because their realtors suggested a P2P inspection. P2P heavily markets to realtors, they are known as not being deal breakers. My clients both sought redress from P2P. One client sought $8500 from their P2P inspector. The inspector gave them the run around and was not eager to return to the house to deal with the problems till the clients retained me. When I phoned the P2P inspector and told him who I was and that I had been retained by his former clients, he was at their house lickly split. He settled out of court for $4500. I believe the franchisee was a former school teacher who bought a franchise. He has since sold his franchise to another person.
On the second one a client used P2P and had major concerns and sued the P2P franchisee. My client was seeking $80K. That inspector is no longer in the business, the report went missing, and items noted in the findings of the report were less than satisfactory.
I continue to hear negatives about P2P both from agents in my area and people who have used their services in the past who were not impressed. P2P may like to think it has a good image but in reality when you begin to hear negatives time and time again from different sources I would say there would be truth to the concern.
No National initiative, or entry requirements in OAHI-CAHPI will get rid of this problem.
