The No. 1 compliant I receive from home inspectors is that some insurance companies cave like tents and pay claimants even when the inspector did nothing wrong!
An insurance company’s only interest is in settling the claim on its own terms, not ones that are necessarily favorable to the home inspector. Accordingly, many home inspectors don’t adequately protect themselves. They carry high deductibles to lower premiums.
Yet, as I always say, you do NOT have to conduct a negligent home inspection to be accused of doing so.
I examine why and detail the near horror story of one home inspector in this week’s ClaimsAcademy video blog.
