While, it's a little different, there is nothing wrong with it. I prefer to see them without nails.

4. Registrants shall not knowingly permit a real estate broker or salesperson (as defined in M.G.L. c 112, § 87PP) to directly recommend his/her services. This prohibition shall not apply if there is a written contractual agreement or a written agency disclosure between a specific buyer and the real estate broker specifying the real estate broker is acting exclusively for the buyer as a Buyer's Broker.

Sounds like its completely legal as long as the agent and the client have a contract saying the they working on the clients interest. You're telling me agents don't make clients sign contracts like that in Mass?

Thanks again, everyone!

Massachusetts, for one.

I don't have different comments for metal or plastic. It isn't matter of good vs. bad, it is a matter of bad vs. worse. I don't recommend a plumber, because they can't inspect it any better than I can. I just recommend considering replacement.
When you don't walk the roof, how do you disclaim it? How do you let the know the clients that its possible that defects exist that you could not observe from the ground or eaves?
Maybe its for the seller side?
Wow I didn't expect to see Nick here

So I'm torn- all I know is if the outcome is a single association whichever it may be, it should not be the result of a fumbled legal issue, it should be the Will of participants in the industry.


It can be both. The will of the participants is known. ASHI is going down. The legal issue would only be an accelerator.
Well I hope they fight him, and lose and then we can be done with them.
They're going to risk 3 mil over a website. Aren't they almost in the same boat as ASHI. They're almost done and they want this to be the coup de grace?

That is a good plan.

I did, and a few more classes after that, but I am not an expert by any means. I do know the difference between a level 1, 2 and 3 though

You're allowed to do a level 1 or 2 but home inspectors can't do either.


A level one is done at every home inspection, it is a visual inspection of components that are readily visible , a level 2 is more involved which most home inspectors do not do but you can get certification , I think there is a one week class in Indiana at csia.org

That isn't true. Home inspectors do not do a level 1 and its not of the components that are readily visible. Even if you were following the standard, and knew what to look for, you shouldn't be doing a level one. A level 2 is required during the sale or transfer of property. I do level 2's and I would never do a level 1 for a home buyer. I have to follow the NFPA 211.

A home inspector does a basic visual inspection of the fire box and damper. That is all you should be telling your clients.
