InterNACHI Code of Ethics Course Essay
I have come to the realization that becoming a home inspector is my calling. So I joined InterNACHI and built a website. My website stated that I am a Certified Home Inspector. Right off the bat my phone starts to ring. I am very excited to get my first call which is from a real estate agent who is frantic. She explains that she is representing a couple who have very little money and need to get their house pre-certified to sell even though they know their furnace is faulty. They are willing to pay an extra $200 to have me do the inspection as well as the $400 inspection price, and the realtor guarantees she will refer all of her clients to me if I will overlook the faulty furnace. I refer to my Code of Ethics. This is not ok and I could end up in front of the Ethics Committee for possible sanctions and/or expulsion from InterNACHI. I tell her that I can not do this. She respects my decision and we live happily ever after.
