In the NACHI Home Inspection Agreement, item 4 allows for discussion of findings with "interested parties."

After all, the report is the PROPERTY of the client.
The Agreement I use specifies that only the CLIENT may supply a copy of the report to other parties - and goes on to release me of any third party liability as a result. Unfortunately my insurance carrier won't allow me to use the NACHI Agreement "as is." I use a contract designed for use in California and prepared by CA Affiliates.
Read and understand the Agreement you use. If you don't use one ![icon_eek.gif](upload://yuxgmvDDEGIQPAyP9sRnK0D0CCY.gif) , consider the NACHI Agreement. It's simple, concise and can help you stay out of trouble in these types of situations.
