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.

Some states won’t let an inspector limit liabiltiy in any form.

Others allow a time limit.

Some allow a $ amount.

Whatever agreement you develop or use, have it reviewed by a competent attorney in your area to make sure it protects you as much as possible "IN YOUR AREA".
