Here’s a question I’ve been taking to heart recently and wanted to know what others are doing about this.
Let’s say you, the home inspector, recommended electrical work to be done by a licensed electrician. The electrician comes and dones his work and the realtor calls and wants you to do a re-inspect on the home before closing. Is a home inspector really qualified to re-inspect an electrical system after the professional electrician has already done the work?
Or, saying it another way, aren’t you putting yourself back in the seat of liability by re-inspecting the system after the professional? What if the electrician missed something, then you miss it, then a month later something goes wrong in the home and you’re the one stuck with the liability because you were the last one on the scene?
Anybody see the problem here?
