I think that you find that different things work in different regions.
I know that if we weren’t required to carry E&O in PA, I would tell all clients to make sure that their inspector has E&O.
As it is, I tell all potential clients to select an inspector that will take the time to explain even the simplest item, and answer even seemingly little questions - that is someone who truly cares about you and will perform a thorough inspection for you.
Absolutely agree Joe. Even though the inspection takes longer(upto to an addtional on site) to inspect, I strongly encourage clients to attend the inspection and ask any questions they may have. My goal is to educate clients and also to set reasonalble expections.
