New inspector and consumer article: The Duty to Warn: A Home Inspector’s and Home Seller’s Guide to Immediate Hazards

December 31st, 2012

Inspectors are somewhat divided on the question of when to breach their client’s confidentiality for when (or whether) to warn a non-client about an imminent danger on an inspected property.  Depending on the hazard, some inspectors wouldn’t think twice, while others are concerned about ensuring everyone’s safety versus minimizing their own liability.  This article discusses the pros and cons for both homeowners and home inspectors:  The Duty to Warn:  A Home Inspector’s and Home Seller’s Guide to Immediate Hazards.
