Why you need a home inspector

Hi Nick:

I just recently joined NACHI and am overwhelmed by the information available to me. This is a great organization. I believe I can get something written up in the St. Petersburg Times or Tampa Tribune. There have been several horror stories, including one in yesterday's paper, about a buyer being taken and the seller was arrested for committing fraud.

I would like to suggest an addition to the Agreement between Inspector and Client. I have seen other Agreements and they had a clause limiting liability on the part of the inspector to either the amount of the inspection or 1 1/2 times the amount of the inspection.

Is this plausible?

I look forward to a long and profitable relationship with NACHI.

Of course your milage will always vary depending on your location. Most inspectors that I know limit their liability to the fee paid for the inspection. NACHI inspectors hava access to that agreement once they join, if you would be interested in joining. We have come a long way since you posted this message and benefits to our members have become increasingly better.
