Coronavirus Disclaimer

Recommended Posts

Has anyone added a Coronavirus disclaimer to their inspection agreements? I had to sign a disclaimer from a real estate office for my last inspection.

Without defining "showing" it's meaningless. As I understand the common meaning of "showing," it has nothing to do with an inspection. 

Also, it's impossible for anyone to attest to items 5 & 6 with honesty. Which means that pretty much everyone who signs it is a liar. 

I find such agreements despicable, but if I were to have one, I'd have my lawyer write something that basically says, "the undersigned parties agree to hold each other harmless with regard to COVID-19."  (I'm sure that the lawyer would drag it out into several paragraphs, but I would insist that it not contain any impossible clauses.)

Off topic: 

I find it interesting that none of the spellcheck programs seems to be up to date with this stuff. Per the AP Stylebook the term "coronavirus" is not capitalized, but COVID-19 is all caps. 

Because I knew you'd want to know.

No way would I sign it.  The realtor is basically dumping all risks into the lap of whoever signs it.

What the heck am I going to do should a 5th person walk into the house?  Looks like someone wrote it up in a pub.

Just take the nacho corona certificate program. A 20 minute video and multiple guess test and you're good to go. And it's 10 hours of CEUs!

We signed one.  I called the Michigan Association of Realtors, the author, and requested they read it.  They did and agreed it was BS.  They wrote it.  They read it. They rejected it. Do the common sense thing(s).

Also off topic, the typeface of the posted document looks like it was banged out on an old portable typewriter with gummed up keys, unless there is a retro font noir available somewhere.
