THIS AGREEMENT made this __________________ day of _________________________________________, 20__
_, by and between
__________________________________________________________ (hereinafter “INSPECTOR”) and the undersigned (“CLIENT”), collectively
referred to herein as “the parties.” The Parties understand and voluntarily agree as follows:
1.
INSPECTOR agrees to perform a visual inspection of the home/building and to provide CLIENT with a written report identifying
the defects that
INSPECTOR b
oth observed and deemed material. INSPECTOR may offer comments as a courtesy, but these comments will not comprise the barga
ined
-
for report. The report is only supplementary to the seller’s disclosure.
2.
Unless otherwise inconsistent with this Agreement or
not possible, INSPECTOR agrees to perform the inspection in accordance with the current
Standards of Practice of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (“InterNACHI”) posted at http://www.nachi
.org/sop.htm. Although
INSPECTOR agrees t
o follow InterNACHI’s Standards of Practice, CLIENT understands that these standards contain limitations, exceptions, and
exclusions. CLIENT understands that InterNACHI is not a party to this Agreement and has no control over INSPECTOR or represe
ntations
made by
INSPECTOR and does not supervise INSPECTOR. Unless otherwise indicated below, CLIENT understands that INSPECTOR will NOT be
testing for
the presence of radon
a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas that may be harmful to humans. Unless otherwise
indicated below, CLIENT understands
that INSPECTOR will NOT be testing for mold. Unless otherwise indicated in a separate writing, CLIENT understands that INSPE
CTOR will not test
for compliance with applicable building codes or for the presence of potent
ial dangers arising from asbestos, lead paint, formaldehyde, molds, soil
contamination, and other environmental hazards or violations.
3.
The inspection and report are for the use of CLIENT only, who gives INSPECTOR permission to discuss observations with rea
l estate agents, owners,
repairpersons, and other interested parties. INSPECTOR shall be the sole owner of the report and all rights to it. INSPECTO
R accepts no responsibility
for use or misinterpretation by third parties, and third parties who rely on i
t in any way do so at their own risk and release INSPECTOR (including
employees and business entities) from any liability whatsoever. Any third parties who rely on the report in any way also agr
ee to all provisions in this
Agreement. INSPECTOR’S inspecti
on of the property and the report are in no way a guarantee or warranty, express or implied, regarding the future use,
operability, habitability or suitability of the home/building or its components. All warranties, express or implied, includin
g warranties
of merchantability
and fitness for a particular purpose, are expressly excluded to the fullest extent allowed by law.
If any structure or portion of any structure that is to be
inspected is a log home, log structure or includes similar log construction, C
LIENT understands that such structures have unique characteristics that make
it impossible for an inspector to inspect and evaluate them by an exterior visual inspection. Therefore, the scope of the in
spection to be performed
pursuant to this Agreement do
es not include decay of the interior of logs in log walls, log foundations or roofs
,
or similar defects
.
4.
INSPECTOR assumes no liability for the cost of repair or replacement of unreported defects or defi
ciencies either current or arising in the future.
CLIENT acknowledges that the lia
bility of INSPECTOR, its agents and/or
employees, for claims or damages, costs of defense or suit, attorney’s fees and
expenses arising out of or related to the INSPECTOR’S n
egligence or breach of any obligation under this Agreement, including errors and omissions in
the inspection or the report, shall be limited to liquidated damages in an amount equal to the fee paid to the INSPECTOR, and
this liability shall be
exclusive.
CLIENT waives any claim for consequential, exemplary, special or incidental damages or for the loss of the use of the home/bu
ilding even if
the CLIENT has been advised of the possibility of such damages. The parties acknowledge that the liquidated damages
are not intended as a penalty but
are intended (i) to reflect the fact that actual damages may be difficult and impractical to ascertain; (ii) to allocate risk
among the INSPECTOR and
CLIENT; and (iii) to enable the INSPECTOR to perform the inspection at t
he stated fee.
5.
INSPECTOR does not perform engineering, architectural, plumbing, or any other job function requiring an occupational license
in the jurisdiction where
the inspection is taking place, unless the inspector holds a valid occupational license, i
n which case he/she may inform the CLIENT that he/she is so
licensed, and is therefore qualified to go beyond this basic home inspection, and for additional fee, perform additional insp
ections beyond those within the
scope of the basic home inspection. Any
agreement for such additional inspections shall be in a separate writing.
6.
In the event of a claim against INSPECTOR, CLIENT agrees to supply INS
PECTOR with the following: (1) w
ritten notification of adverse conditions
within
14 days of discovery; and (2)
a
ccess to the premises. Failure to comply with the above conditions will release INSPECTOR and its agents from
any and all obligations or liability of any kind.
7.
The parties agree that any litigation arising out of this Agreement shall be filed only in the
Court having jurisdiction in the County in which the
INSPECTOR has its principal place of business. In the event that CLIENT fails to prove any claims against INSPECTOR in a cou
rt of law, CLIENT
agrees to pay all legal costs, expenses and fees of INSPECT
OR in defending said claims. CLIENT further understands that any legal action against
InterNACHI itself allegedly arising out of this Agreement or INSPECTOR’s relationship with InterNACHI must be brought only in
the District Court of
Boulder County, Color
ado. No such action may be filed unless the plaintiff has first provided InterNACHI with 30 days’ written notice of the natu
re of
the claim. In any action against INSPECTOR and/or InterNACHI, CLIENT waives trial by jury.
8.
If any court declares any provisi
on of this Agreement invalid, the remaining provisions will remain in effect. This Agreement represents the entire
agreement between the parties. All prior communications are merged into this Agreement, and there are no terms or conditions
other than tho
se set forth
herein. No statement or promise of INSPECTOR or its agents shall be binding unless reduced to writing and signed by INSPECTO
R. No change shall be
enforceable against any party unless it is in writing and signed by the parties. This Agreemen
t shall be binding upon and enforceable by the parties and
their heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assignees. CLIENT shall have no cause of action against INSPECTOR aft
er one year from the date
of the inspection.

and time expenses incurred in collecting due payments, including attorney’s fees, if any. If CLIENT is a corporation, LLC, o

he rule of construction that a document is to be construed more strictly against the  party who
prepared it.
