Home inspectors are professionally trained to identify issues and risks with a home and may suggest recommendations based on the inspection. A pre-inspection agreement allows you to set the exact terms of your inspection and helps insulate you.


Key Elements for Pre-Inspection Agreements

  • Home inspection fee and due date.
  • Exclusions of the inspection. The inspector does not include engineering or architectural services.
  • Inclusions of the inspection. Clearly, describe the scope of services.
  • Extras that can be included in the inspection for a fee.
  • Limitations of liability. See a lawyer and state provisions.
  • Dispute resolution process in the event of a claim.
  • There is no guarantee or warranty on the inspection.
  • All changes to the agreement must be in writing.
