A licensed structural engineer called me to schedule an inspection the other day. I sent him my contract via email after setting a day and time as I always do, so he could review the contract before the inspection. He then called me to ask about the contract clause that says I’m only liable for the inspection fee. He asked if that would be able to be upheld in courts, and if I had E&O insurance (I do). After my saying that clause is an industry standard, he still wants me to do the inspection. But mulling this over, and remembering hearing about other inspectors that turn down inspections when the client asks if they have E&O insurance, I’m thinking about calling this guy back and declining to do his inspection.
What would you do?
