Spring is the selling season in Michigan.
How many listing agents are asking for a cert. of insurance from the home inspector who is conducting a inspection on their clients home? I had a house inspector recently tell me that he has only been asked 1 other time before, in 20 years of business. This was a very reputable inspector, but my job is to protect the seller. In this economy everyone is cutting costs in doing business. Sometimes this could be the first budget cut to make, especially if agents are not asking for it.
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against inspectors. But, if this person slips and falls, who is responsible? Should your seller's turn a claim into their insurance company on a house that they are trying to sell? We should not get caught up in the sale, but ask to have the cert. faxed to our office.
Let's make everyone in the transaction accountable.
