InterNACHI Middle East’s standard property inspection agreement is a form many members use as the basis for their own contracts with clients.
Inspectors can also use InterNACHI’s Online Inspection Agreement System . Inspectors can edit this online agreement to read as they wish, and clients can sign this agreement online
Most inspections start with a phone call, usually from a property buyer who wants to buy a property, sometimes from a property seller who wants to find out about any problems with the property before it is advertised for sale, or in the case of a multi-occupancy building, one or more of the stakeholders. Sometimes the call is from a real estate agent who is acting for a client who would rather not deal with locating an inspector, and sometimes it is from a developer who is getting close to accepting handover of a development from the contractor.
Every part of the inspection process is handled assuming the worst; that there will be problems resulting in legal action, and so it is important to adhere to a process that will help protect the inspector if they have to go to court.
