Inspector's liability for undetected/undisclosed defects in this inspection and report is limited to a maximum period of one

year from date of inspection and is limited to a refund of the fee paid. The liability of the inspector's principals, agents,

sub-contractors, and employees is likewise limited. This liability limitation is binding on Customer and Customer's spouse,

heirs, principals, assigns and any others who may make a claim through the customer. Customer assumes the risk of all

losses greater than the fee paid for the inspection and agrees to immediately accept a refund of the fee as full settlement of

any and all claims which may arise form this inspection. This liability limitation may be removed by electing to have an

exhaustive inspection under separate direction, control, contract and scope at an estimated cost of 3 to 4 time that of a limited

visual inspection. If a dispute arises from his inspection and report, or its interpretation, Customer agrees not to alter,

repair, replace, or modify any disputed component or condition without the Inspector re-inspecting the situation following

written notice from customer - failure to provide written notice and the opportunity to re-inspect the component or condition

prior to repair shall result in the loss of Customers right to claim/refund. Any major dispute or controversy shall be settled

by Mediation or if unsuccessful by Binding Arbitration in accordance with the Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration

Association, and judgment upon the award rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.














Customer and/or Customer Representative(s) are responsible for their own safety during the inspection. Use of Inspector's

equipment is at your own risk. Inspector specifically advises against entering dangerous areas or manipulating equipment. The

inspection is performed for the purpose of informing the Customer of the condition of the property on the day of the inspection.

If any stated limitation or standard is exceeded it is done solely at the inspectors option and does not void the terms and

conditions of this contract. Furthermore, if any portion of this contract conflicts with local statutes, only those sections are to be

amended, the balance of the contract applies as stated. This report contains technical information that may not be understandable

to the lay person. If you have questions about any part of this report it is your responsibility to consult with the inspector. Inspector

is not responsible for report misunderstandings resulting from the  failure to request a clarification.














In the event that the customer is not present and the representing Real Estate Agent or Customer Representative signs on

behalf of the Customer, it shall have the same effect a complete pre-inspection authorization. Use or reliance on the findings

of this inspection and report in any way binds the Customer to the terms and limitations of the inspection as noted herein

and within the aforementioned "Standards of Practice".
