  1. I guess I need to shop around. I have been inspecting since 2002. I did the fast track inspection class at ITA which is now Kaplan School. I use the ITA Matrix Reporting system on my laptop. I have 24 years in the building industry and the last 15 yrs I have been building custom Spec homes. I have over 650 paid inspections. I am not a member of any home inspection association. I have never been asked about being a member in one. I live on the island of Kauai and do not have any plans to leave to inspect on the mainland.

  4. I just found out I am not covered by my insurance without a signed contract. I have a tough time getting clients to sign my contract due to the fact I do not have contact with 90% of my clients as they are buying property out of state. Is there a way to get a digital signature before a client opens the inspection report? Would that satisfy the insurance company? Any recommendations on how to get the client to sign the contract? Sorry if this post is a little off topic. Thanks in advance
