Investigating Claims Against Home and Property Inspectors
One of the fastest growing sectors of the housing industry is the home/property inspector (HPIs). HPIs face complaints and/or legal action from clients who contend there are building defects not included in the HPI's report. Errors and omissions insurance is increasingly expensive or even unavailable, forcing some HPIs to operate without insurance. Most claims are for foundation defects such as cracks and water infiltration. The national association that represents HPIs is working to resolve these challenges. Consumers need to be aware of the insurance issues.
