I just found out that standard pacific homes in the Charlotte NC area is requiring unusual and unfair insurance for inspectors. Is this to keep us from inspecting their houses?
I used to inspect many of their houses but have not done any for a long time. Are they doing something to steer buyers away from an inspector they know is thorough?
One option for for buyers that are to far along in the process to back out is to go ahead and skip the inspection until you own the home and then submit everything under the warranty process. If it were me, I would make them put $5k in an escrow until I could get the inspector of choice in there to check it out.

Get real with your insurance requirements like the other builders and I will remove this public service message.
Don’t use the excuse that your insurance company requires it, that is wrong, all you have to do is explain to them that inspection work is not construction work.
