Consider adding an arbitration clause to your pre-inspection agreement. This will withhold all claims against you against you and force the other party to settle the matter. The advantage of this option is that arbitration is much less expensive than litigation. Also check with your insurance company. You may not find it necessary to read your agreement, but it is advisable to have a conversation with them about what they recommend or expect. The Foundation of Real Estate Associates stresses the need to get hold of a pre-inspection contract signed before each order, without exception. 11. If the CLIENT requests a new inspection, the new inspection is also subject to all the conditions provided for in this Agreement. The standard fee for the new inspection is USD 125.00 per visit. The CLIENT agrees that all taxes for the new inspection are due prior to the publication of a new inspection document. The verification fee is charged to the customer, unless both parties have not agreed otherwise in writing separately. Many inspectors offer supplements to their standard home inspections. In such circumstances, it is important to identify services that are optional and not automatically included.
In this way, you are protected when a customer tries to argue that you have for example included radon tests in each inspection after deciding not to pay for the additional service. 9. Your inspector may have a relationship with a third party (“TPSP”) to provide you with additional value-added services. By entering into this agreement, you authorize (a) your inspector to provide the TPSP with your contact information (including telephone number), (b) waive and release any restrictions that may prevent the TPSP from contacting you (including by telephone), and c) authorize the TPSP to contact you (including by telephone) regarding special offers for home alarm systems. In addition to pointing out that some inspection elements are optional, you can enter into additional agreements for additional services. Such agreements do not replace your standard agreement prior to the inspection. Instead, they serve to add other specific terms to the additional service.
