The full name of the person making this agreement.

The address of the planned inspection.

1. INSPECTOR agrees to perform a visual inspection of the home/building and to provide CLIENT with an electronic inspection report identifying the defects that INSPECTOR both observed and deemed material. INSPECTOR may offer comments as a courtesy, but these comments will not comprise the bargained-for report. The report is only supplementary to the seller’s disclosure.

2. Unless otherwise inconsistent with this Agreement or not possible, INSPECTOR agrees to perform the inspection in accordance to the current Standards of Practice of the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors posted at http://www.nachi.org/sop.htm. CLIENT understands that these standards contain certain limitations, exceptions, and exclusions.

3. The inspection and report are performed and prepared for the use of CLIENT, who gives INSPECTOR permission to discuss observations with real estate agents, owners, repairpersons, and other interested parties. INSPECTOR accepts no responsibility for use or misinterpretation by third parties. INSPECTOR’S inspection of the property and the accompanying report are in no way intended to be a guarantee or warranty, express or implied, regarding the future use, operability, habitability or suitability of the home/building or its components. Any and all warranties, express or implied, including warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, are expressly excluded by this Agreement.

4. INSPECTOR assumes no liability for the cost of repair or replacement of unreported defects or deficiencies either current or arising in the future. CLIENT acknowledges that the liability of INSPECTOR, its agents, employees, for claims or damages, costs of defense or suit, attorney’s fees and expenses and payments arising out of or related to the INSPECTOR’S negligence or breach of any obligation under this Agreement, including errors and omissions in the inspection or the report, shall be limited to liquidated damages in an amount equal to the fee paid to the INSPECTOR, and this liability shall be exclusive. CLIENT waives any claim for consequential, exemplary, special or
incidental damages or for the loss of the use of the home/building even if the CLIENT has been advised of the possibility of such damages. The parties acknowledge that the liquidated damages are not intended as a penalty but are intended (i) to reflect the fact that actual damages may be difficult and impractical to ascertain; (ii) to allocate risk among the INSPECTOR and CLIENT; and (iii) to enable the INSPECTOR to perform the inspection at the stated fee.

5. INSPECTOR does not perform engineering, architectural, plumbing, or any other job function requiring an occupational license in the jurisdiction where the inspection is taking place, unless the inspector holds a valid occupational license, in which case he/she may inform the CLIENT that he/she is so licensed, and is therefore qualified to go beyond this basic home inspection, and for additional fee, perform additional inspections beyond those within the scope of the basic home inspection.

6. Inspection Does Not Include: Initial _________
Negotiating issues with the builder/owner/contractor; sewer lines and/or onsite waste disposal systems; water softeners; shower pans; over-flow drains; identification of Chinese drywall; low voltage electrical systems; backup generators, data and communications systems or other ancillary wiring that is not part of the primary electrical distribution system; lightening arrestors; any timing systems; water purification systems; well systems; solar heating systems; swimming pools; spas; fencing; playground or sports equipment; underground sprinkler systems; pressure tests on central air conditioner systems; furnace heat exchangers; radiant heating systems; portable appliances (including refrigerators, washers, dryers, etc.), carbon monoxide detectors. Inspection company will not inspect for any environmental issues such as lead paint, asbestos, radon gas (unless specifically requested), or drinking water quality. Inspection company will not address conditions relating to animals, pests, or rodents. EIFS siding systems are not inspected. No sampling or analysis of mold is conducted. Cosmetic features are excluded, including without limitation: paint; wall coverings; carpeting and other floor coverings; paneling; lawn; and landscaping. Inspection company will not inspect for building code compliance, soil analysis, adequacy of design, capacity, efficiency size, value, flood plain location, pollution or habitability. Inspection company will not attempt to identify recalled systems or components. Inspection company will not operate heating or cooling systems in temperatures that may cause damage to the unit (air conditioner systems will not be operated if the outside temp. is below 65 deg. F., heat pumps will not be operated in normal heat mode if the outside temp. is above 75 deg. F.). Inspection company will not inspect heat exchangers, boilers, etc. for cracks.

7. In the event of a claim against INSPECTOR, CLIENT agrees to supply INSPECTOR with the following: (1) Written notification of adverse conditions within 14 days of discovery, and (2) Access to the premises. Failure to comply with the above conditions will release INSPECTOR and its agents from any and all obligations or liability of any kind.

8. The parties agree that any litigation arising out of this Agreement shall be filed only in the Court having jurisdiction in the County in which the INSPECTOR has its principal place of business. In the event that CLIENT fails to prove any adverse claims against INSPECTOR in a court of law, CLIENT agrees to pay all legal costs, expenses and fees of INSPECTOR in defending said claims.

9. If any court declares any provision of this Agreement invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in effect. This Agreement represents the entire agreement between the parties. All prior communications are merged into this Agreement, and there are no terms or conditions other than those set forth herein. No statement or promise of INSPECTOR or its agents shall be binding unless reduced to writing and signed by INSPECTOR. No change or modification shall be enforceable against any party unless such change or modification is in writing and signed by the parties. This Agreement shall be binding upon and enforceable by the parties and their heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assignees. CLIENT shall have no cause of action against INSPECTOR after one year from the date of the inspection.

10. Payment of the fee to INSPECTOR (less any deposit noted above) is due upon completion of the on-site inspection. The CLIENT agrees to pay all legal and time expenses incurred in collecting due payments, including attorney’s fees, if any. If CLIENT is a corporation, LLC, or similar entity, the person signing this Agreement on behalf of such entity does personally guarantee payment of the fee by the entity.

11. "Your inspector may have an affiliation with a third party service provider ("TPSP") in order to offer you additional value- added services. By entering into this agreement you (a) authorize your inspector to provide your contact information (including telephone number) to the TPSP, (b) waive and release any restrictions that may prevent the TPSP from contacting you (including by telephone), and (c) authorize the TPSP to contact you (including by telephone) regarding special home alarm system offers."

12. CLIENT agrees and understands this SERVICE AGREEMENT is good for 6 months or 181 days from the date of the inspection. After 6 months CLIENT understands the INSPECTOR WILL BE RELEASED from any and all obligations or liability of any kind.

NEITHER THE HOME INSPECTION NOR INSPECTION REPORT CONSTITUTES A WARRANTY, AN INSURANCE POLICY, OR A GUARANTEE OF ANY KIND.
