Shifting Indemnity When Purchasing a House
In conversation about a property purchase, a pre-purchase home inspector can and should only answer questions pertaining to their areas of expertise and the home buyer should never go outside that fact, yet they do!
Most home buyers are excited about their purchase and only want to hear, it’s OK to buy, not the problems or the issues that are associated with the purchase such as termites, mould, safety issues, faults and defects that will end up costing a fortune.
Therefore the home inspector will use terms like, “It’s essential you acknowledge to me once you have read and understand the inspection report” this is in fact shifting the indemnity back to the reader of the report that needs to make a well informed decision here on the biggest purchase of their life.
This is a hell of a responsibility, on both parties.
HOW EDUCATION IN TRUTH AND REAL TIME CHANGES,
GET IT RIGHT!
