Home Inspection Pre-Inspection Agreement for Illinois
Written specifically to comply with State of Illinois requirements for pre-inspection agreements, this agreement follows the Illinois Standards of Practice, 68 Ill. Admin. Code 1410, Sec. 1410.200, but also incorporates the ASHI Standards of Practice (the Illinois Standards of Practice must be followed by law, but they are weak and other standards may be followed as long as the Illinois standards take precedence). This document is conveyed to you via email as a Word document, so it can be easily edited on most computers with a Windows operating system, including changing the ASHI reference to NAHI, NACHI or other association standards (we recommend that changes only be made by a qualified attorney in Illinois). It fits nicely on the front and back of a single 8 ½ x 11 sheet of paper, and describes the scope of the inspection, contains an extensive list of items not included in the inspection, places the limitation of liability at the fee paid for the inspection (upheld in the Illinois court system) and the limitation of action to one year from the date of the inspection.  Includes the “usual” contract items: limitation of liability, interpretations, assignment, attorney’s fees, use by client, etc. Purchasing this document entitles your company to unlimited use of this document, but you may not provide or sell it to anyone else.

Available for a one-time fee of $39.95

Home Inspection Pre-Inspection Agreement for
"licensed" states other than Illinois or Indiana

We can have a contract specifically written to comply with the requirements of your state for pre-inspection agreements, if your state requires you to have a license. While the content will be quite similar to those described above for Illinois and Indiana, requirements vary from state to state so there will undoubtedly be differences in the contract for your state.
