    Default missing agreement

    At a recent inspection I had my usual two copies of the Inspection Agreement. We filled each out and I put my copy away. At the end of the inspection the client asked me if I had picked his copy up off of the counter by mistake. I checked all my stuff and didn't have it.

    There were several people at the inspection besides the client and me. There were agents from both the sellers and buyers sides, a tennant or owner who was clearing belongings away, and another who may have been an owner/investor who was discussing transaction details with the client.

    Anyway, the clients copy was MIA. I scanned him a copy of mine so thats no big deal. However, we were wondering what happened to the other copy.

    I understand that someone could have picked it up by accident. Other than that, can you think of any reason why someone would intentionally take the other copy?

    It could have been inadvertently picked up. Perhaps one of the others set some papers on top of the agreement and accidentally picked up the agreement with the other papers.

    Is that the norm in your area for the amount of people at an inspection?

    Just curious.

    Was there any toilet paper in the bathrooms?

    Many people, particularly agents, just love to pick up my paperwork. I leave it in a specific location and they "help" me by moving it to a location that they feel is better in some way. Then I have to chase it down. Drives me nuts.

    I have boxes of paperwork here at home that I just pick up at my inspections. If I see a piece of paper, I take it. I can't help it.

    The agent probably has a brother in law that is going to be a home inspector and she thought he could use a copy of your agreement to make his up from.
