REPORT WRITING - IDENTIFY AND DESCRIBE THAT DEFECT
Monday, January 21st, 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
How would an experienced home inspector identify and write up that defect? In this seminar, you will review photographs of home defects and learn how experienced inspectors document them. We will review reporting standards. Tom Feiza and other experienced inspectors (optional) provide the specific write-ups they use within the context of national standards and a typical code of ethics. You will receive wording and disclaimer statements that accurately notify buyers of the defect while protecting the home inspector. We allow time for audience input and discussion.
