I was fixing to eat a bite sized candy bar when I noticed that the chocolate had not thoroughly covered the almond and coconut center. A good sized hole was left and this lady with bad eye site could clearly see the coconut and almond through that hole. How odd, I thought, I had never seen a piece of candy that had any kind of fault.
My wandering mind remembered about a recent post about a client who did not want to have an inspection done on the home that they made an offer on. Who would not want that? It is so important.
Everything goes through inspections… our shirts, pants, under clothing, cookware; literally everything has a sticker or a piece of paper exclaiming that this item was inspected by someone. This means that people make mistakes sometimes so an inspection is warranted.
Inspections are done so that the buyer or current owner can be sure that nothing is wrong with the object of the inspection. I have my home inspected for termites, my car inspected to prove to the state that my truck is safe to drive on Texas roadways. Any rental building that rents to a new business has to have an inspection prior to reconnecting to the power poles so that there will no issues prior to turning on electricity.
So if everything has to be inspected…should that not tell you that an inspection is important? You can’t make your client get an inspection but you can insure that you will not be in litigation because they did not get one. Have them sign the “Inspector” TREC form that clearly states “I refuse an inspection” and states the address.
