HOME INSPECTION DISCLOSURE

RE:  HOME INSPECTION DISCLOSURE

Brokers who refer home inspectors could be liable to the buyer for damage caused by a negligent

inspector.

If the broker has a list of home inspectors that it refers, then assure that those inspectors are (1) a

member of either ASHI or CREIA and (2) have Errors & Omissions Insurance.

 Consider the following language for your Home Inspection Disclosure which buyer should sign

and which should become part of the transaction file:

“Buyer is responsible for selecting a home inspector. Buyer may choose any home

inspector and is not limited to an inspector referred by broker. Buyer is strongly advised

to conduct due diligence as Buyer deems necessary prior to choosing a home inspector.

It is Buyer’s responsibility to assure that his/her home inspector has adequate errors

& omissions insurance.

Broker does not endorse or recommend any particular home inspector or home inspection

service. Broker does not guarantee the work of any particular home inspector or home

inspection service. Broker makes no representation or warranty that any particular home

inspector or home inspection service will perform competently.

I, (Buyer), acknowledge receipt of this disclosure and understand its importance.

Date: _______ _ Sign: __________ “
