  1. I offer a reduced rate if the inspection is stopped part way through. I amend the agreement stating that the inspection and the home purchase was stopped by the client and no report is given unless they want it. They always, don't bother with the report. I do keep my notes and pictures on file, in the event they are needed. More often than not, they thanks me and hire me for the next home.

  2. As we know time is precious in our business. Especially when you have multiple inspections booked. I have had this occur a few times. The agent would call informing me that they would be late. They say you can start the inspection and want to give you the lock box # to enter the home. I then ask is the house vacant or is is occupied ? If it occupied, I tell them not to give me the lock box # and I will wait till they get there. If the home is vacant with no personal belongings, I don't have a problem going in. I also confirm that they will be there during our scheduled time. What are your thought's ?

  3. I do offer pool inspections at an additional cost. I do explain to the clients that it is a visual inspection only. I do not perform pressure tests on the return and supply lines and I don't do a swab test of the liner or shell of the pool. If the client is well aware of the scope and limitations of the pool inspection, then you are fine. Being familiar with pools is obviously better. I have owned and serviced my own pool for the last 16 years.

  4. Some good responses here. For me it really depends on how soon after the first inspection was done. I have performed a second inspection on the same house, but it was 2 years later. I did not bother to inform the client. I realized it as I was pulling up to the house. Many renovations were done to the home. It was also not owned by my previous clients. I conducted the inspection as usual.
