Certified Inspector



My Promise to You

Choosing the right Atlanta home inspector can be difficult.  Unlike most professionals, you probably will not get to meet me until after you hire me. Furthermore, different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and yes, different pricing. One thing for sure is that a home inspection requires work, a lot of work.  Ultimately, a thorough inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort.  If you honor me by permitting me to inspect your new home, I guarantee that I will give you my very best effort.  This I promise you.

HOME INSPECTION AGREEMENT AND RECEIPT

Client Name: _____________________________________________________________.
The address of the property is: ________________________________________________.
Fee for the home inspection is $_____________________.

THIS AGREEMENT made this ______ day of _________, ______, by and between Upscale Home Inspections, LLC (hereinafter "INSPECTOR") and the undersigned______________ ____________________________ (hereinafter "CLIENT"), collectively referred to herein as "the parties."    The Parties Understand and Voluntarily Agree as follows:

With your authorization, The INSPECTOR will complete a essentially visual inspection and evaluation of the home/building, recommend appropriate specialist services, perform any consultation that may be necessary and a supply a written inspection report identifying the defects that the INSPECTOR both observed and deemed material. The property inspection will be conducted in accordance to the current Standards of Practice of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors. In return, and in consideration of the fee, you are agreeing with your signature to abide by the terms and conditions of this contract, including the following clauses that you are required to initial to indicate your understanding and consent.

The inspection is that of a generalist, and has clearly defined limitations. It is performed on-site within a few hours, and does not include any warranty or guaranty. By contrast, specialist inspections take considerably longer, typically include the use of specialized instruments, could involve sampling or destructive testing, and commonly include some form of guaranty. Specialized inspections are essential to evaluate soil conditions, determine structural movement, establish the quality of air and water, or reveal the presence of harmful environmental contaminants such as radon, methane, asbestos, lead, formaldehyde, electro-magnetic radiation, molds and fungi, and other wood-destroying organisms, all of which are beyond the scope of a generalist inspection. Therefore, please be aware of the limitations of a generalist inspection: It is not a termite inspection. Also, it is not a code-compliance inspection and does not include any research, such as that necessary to establish boundaries, easements, or the issuance of permits, and it should not be used as a substitute for the Seller’s Transfer Disclosure Statement.

Similarly, and in accordance with InterNACHI Standards Of Practice, the INSPECTOR does not evaluate or endorse any components that are not visually accessible. These include, significant portions of most chimney flues, the interior of furnace heat exchangers and air-conditioning coils, subterranean or concealed ducts, pipes, conduits, and those within walls, floors, or ceilings, the slab beneath carpets, the waterproof membrane beneath roofs, balconies, or shower pans, and surfaces and components concealed by furnishings.

Also, the INSPECTOR does not evaluate or endorse the following specific components: computerized systems, radio or remotely controlled components, central vacuum systems, alarm, telephone, cable, or intercom systems, private sewage systems, private water supply systems, water softeners, water circulating devices, water filtration or purification devices, automatic sprinklers, the hermetic seal of dual-glazed windows or skylights, solar systems, fire-sprinkler systems, shut-off valves that are not in daily use, elevators, dumb-waiters, funiculars or similar mechanical means of transport, saunas, steam showers, humidifiers, electronic air cleaners, in-line duct-motors or dampers, washers and dryers, their valves and drain pipes, condensate pumps, thermostats, timers, clocks, rotisseries, refrigerators, portable or free-standing appliances, retaining walls, landscaping or landscape items, including decorative and low-voltage lighting, portable spas, fountains and ponds, barbecues, fire-pits, pool-sweep assemblies, in-line chlorinators, or similar devices dispensing bromine or ozone, and the coatings on pools, spas, countertops, fixtures, appliances, decks and walkways.

In addition, the INSPECTOR does not tacitly endorse or guarantee the integrity of any structure or component that was built or installed without permit, and which could include latent defects, or any item that may have been subject to a manufacturer's recall.

Initials: _____ The INSPECTORS  inspection of the property and the accompanying report are in no way intended to be a guarantee or warranty, express or implied, regarding the future use, operability, habitability or suitability of the home/building or its components.

Initials: _____ I agree and understand that I have requested the INSPECTOR to perform a "generalist" inspection in accordance with InterNACHI standards, which is in lieu of a "specialist" inspection such as engineering, architectural, plumbing, electrical or any other job function requiring an occupational license in the jurisdiction where the inspection is taking place.

Initials: _____ I agree and understand that I should read the full inspection report, and follow every recommendation for evaluation and/or service and documentation by licensed specialists. Furthermore, I agree and understand that by failing to do so I will violate the pre-inspection agreement, and that the INSPECTOR  shall be held harmless for any subsequently alleged defects or deficiencies.

Initials: _____ I agree and understand that whereas the INSPECTOR  may report on suspicious stains or mold-like substances, that the inspector is not an environmental hygienist and is not licensed, qualified, or authorized to identify any purported mold or fungi.

Initials: _____ I agree and understand that the INSPECTOR shall be held harmless for any defects or deficiencies that are alleged to exist beyond a period of one full year following the date of the inspection.

Initials: _____ I agree and understand that with the exception of undertaking sensible emergency procedures, such as turning off water or other utilities, I will not alter, repair, replace, correct, or modify any allegedly defective component or condition without giving Upscale Home Inspections LLC or their representatives (1) Written notification of adverse conditions within 14 days of discovery, and (2) Access to the premises to re-inspect and evaluate conditions for themselves.. Failure to comply with the above conditions will release Upscale Home Inspections LLC and its agents from any and all obligations or liability of any kind

Initials: _____ I agree and understand that I will attempt to informally resolve any dispute, controversy, interpretation or claim for, but not limited to, breach of contract, any form of negligence, fraud or misrepresentation arising out of, from or related to this contract or arising out of, from or related to the inspection or inspection report. Should such an attempt fail, I agree to submit the dispute for final and binding arbitration, whether it be a breach of contract and/or tort, and that the decision of the appointed arbitrator shall be honored and binding on all parties and be entered in the Court having jurisdiction in the County in which the INSPECTOR has its principal place of business.

Initials: _____ I agree that the liability the INSPECTOR  may have arising out of this Inspection and Report, for any cause or action whatsoever, whether in contract or in negligence, is limited to a refund of the fees that you have been charged for this inspection.

Initials: _____ I agree and understand that if any part of this contract is judged to be invalid or unenforceable by any court or arbitrator that the remaining terms and conditions shall remain in effect and be binding on all parties.

Initials: _____ REPORTS. Consult with your agent before initialing this paragraph. The INSPECTOR will provide Client and Client's agent of record with a service report. CLIENT agrees that the service report is a confidential, copyrighted document intended for CLIENT’s sole and exclusive use.

Initials: ______ For Condominiums, Townhouses, and Subdivisions With Common Areas. Common areas (e.g., walls, foundation, roof, garage, laundry, etc.), shared by more than one unit, common mechanical systems (e.g., water heater, plumbing, etc.) used by more than one unit, and areas typically under the jurisdiction of the homeowners’ association (e.g., exterior grounds, exterior structure, and exterior systems) will not be inspected.

All of the other terms of the Agreement are incorporated herein by reference.

Payment of the fee to INSPECTOR is due upon completion of the on-site inspection. The CLIENT agrees to pay all legal and time expenses incurred in collecting due payments, including attorney's fees, if any. If CLIENT is a corporation, LLC, or similar entity, the person signing this Agreement on behalf of such entity does personally guaranty payment of the fee by the entity.

If CLIENT requests a re-inspection, the re-inspection is also subject to all the terms and conditions set forth in this agreement.

This Agreement is not transferable or assignable.

AUTHORIZATION

I have read and understood the entire pre-inspection agreement, and agree to all of the terms and conditions therein, and authorize Upscale Home Inspections to complete a "generalist" inspection of the property as described and defined in the public and recognized standards of InterNACHI.
