I apologize for this post as I know this question has been asked before in the past but I would like to make sure I fully understand what we can and can’t do in regards to anything WDO related.
From what I can tell, home inspectors can’t:
-advertise WDO inspections
-perform WDO inspections
-fill out the WDO inspection checklist found on the InterNACHI website
-say that wood damage is due to WDO in a home inspection report
-do anything related to WDO
I ask this because i’ve used home inspectors in the past (when I was buying a home) and I was charged a fee for a termite inspection. Recently, i was working with a client who’s realtor requires a WDO report as part of her (the realtor’s) contract. In this situation, would I perform the home inspection and then recommend a pest control company to perform the WDO?
I’m also assuming the InterNACHI WDO course doesn’t do anything for home inspectors in Florida either?
Thanks in advance for any replies. Just trying to wrap my head around all of this and staying within the law.
