Attendance / Opinion: The home inspection report represents OUR "opinion" of the property at the
time of the inspection. OUR interpretation of what is good or fair may be different than CLIENT.
CLIENT is strongly encouraged to be present at the time of the inspection so WE will have a better understanding of
each other's perceptions. OUR purpose is
to determine whether or not a system (electrical, heating, etc) is working properly. WE are not responsible
to determine all that may be wrong with that system, just whether or not a second opinion is needed, such as a licensed electrician
or HVAC contractor. They determine what steps are necessary to correct. Their troubleshooting
may reveal additional items not mentioned in this report. WE are not responsible for items mentioned or
not mentioned in this report. WE are not a guarantee nor do we guarantee any items or opinions described
on this report.
Warranty / Claims / Limitations: This inspection is to reduce the risk of finding
a potential problem, not to eliminate them. WE do not guarantee that all defects will be located, reported,
identified or recognized. CLIENT agrees that OUR limit of liability shall not exceed
the amount paid for the inspection. By retaining OUR services CLIENT acknowledges, understands,
and agrees to the statements and terms contained herein, and will hold US harmless to any claims made. WE

of the alleged error or omission within one week of their discovery of the item(s) and agrees to allow US a reasonable opportunity
to re-inspect, address, and repair the alleged error or omission prior to any repairs being performed. Failure
on behalf of the CLIENT to notify US in writing and grant US a reasonable opportunity to re-inspect, address, and repair the
alleged item(s) is admission by the CLIENT that the condition did not exist at the time of the inspection and shall constitute
a remise, full release, and forever discharge US from all, and all manner of, actions, causes of action, suits, proceedings,
debts, dues, judgments, damages, claims, administrative claims, and demands whatsoever in law or equity. If
CLIENT makes a claim against US for an alleged error, omission, or other act arising out of this inspection report and fails
to prove such claim, CLIENT agrees to pay all attorneys’ fees, arbitrator’s fees, legal expenses, and costs incurred
by US in defense of the claim. In the event of a refund of inspection fee or portion thereof, or any other
sum, such refund shall be a full and final settlement of all present and future claims, administrative claims, and causes
of actions, complaints, etc. and WE shall be thereupon generally and fully released. This inspection is
not for third party use; CLIENT requests this inspection/report for their confidential use only. WE will
not release this report to any third party without client approval. If CLIENT decides to release this report
to others CLIENT agrees to defend, indemnify, and hold US harmless for any damages claimed by others. CLIENT
agrees that WE will only be named as an expert witness in litigation issues and CLIENT agrees to execute our litigation agreement
prior to naming us an expert witness. Should any buyer or entity disclaim authority of contract signer
to act as an agent of any or all buyers, then the signer of the contract herein indemnifies us for all costs, damages, judgments,
and expenses incurred by us, including attorney’s fees, regarding any claims against us made by buyer or entity that
relies on report or other representation or conduct of us or agents thereof.
