I suppose this is not just a Florida issue, but lately I have had a higher number of re-inspections and it is driving me crazy. My question is how and when do other inspectors charge for re-inspections? Of course if I miss something, I expect to go back and re-inspect at no charge.
I completed an inspection last week w/ buyer and seller present. The seller is also the listing agent. Seller told me that the dishwasher was leaking some time ago but he fixed it. However, at the time of inspection it was unplugged and not working while I was there. I listed on the report as inspected, but not working. The buyer had the realtor call me and ask what I already explained to the buyer in front of the seller at time of inspection that it was not working. I explained that there would be a re-inspection fee and that I would bill the seller but everyone is freaking out. I tried to explain how I bill for my hours and inspections but no one cares and Im the bad guy.:twisted:
