InspectionContracts.com started with a simple goal: assist property inspectors by providing an effective means of communicating the scope of their services to their clients. After several years providing risk management seminars for professional inspectors we realized confusion about what the inspection includes, and more importantly, what it does not, contributed to cause customer complaints and, sometimes, claims and litigation. Traveling around the country speaking to inspectors alerted us to the need for affordable, specific contracts for home inspection and other services related to the home inspection profession. We believe our contracts satisfy that need, and we hope you will too.
