In the past, I have always encouraged clients to attend the entire inspection. However, on the advice of my insurance carrier, I have had to change this policy. This is to ensure maximum client safety during the inherently dangerous process of inspecting a home or building as well as ensuring the owner’s privacy.
Under my new policy, I will arrive at the beginning of the appointment and conduct the inspection. I ask that you attend just the last thirty minutes of the inspection. This will give us time to do a walk-through with you to summarize our findings.
The exception to this policy (and every rule has its exception) is that you may attend the entire inspection IF your Realtor is present for the entirety as well.
If children are attending the inspection walk-through with you, they must be under the direct supervision of an adult.
