Home buyers put their faith in home inspectors to give them complete knowledge of the property they plan to purchase. If the inspector makes a mistake, the home buyer will be left with the repair cost. This is not acceptable for our clients. To ensure your confidence, we have increased our liability to $2,500.00. Most of our competition limits their liability to the fee paid for the inspection (this clause is in most contracts). This will save you the attorney’s fees and increase your confidence that our inspectors will be your best protection from surprises.
