Default Fidelity Inspection & Consulting Services

Good morning (depending on where you are) I have been contacted a couple of times concerning subcontracting inspections with Fideliety Inspection & Consulting Services (a re location outfit) Anybody heard of or had experience with them? For one thing I don'tt care for is they ask for a 'cure' for any deficiences found and also estimated cost. I have been assurred these are to be non binding estimates but I'm not the most trusting feller.
Is there any list of 'estimated repair/replacement costs' available in our esteemed association? I have looked and not found
Thanks for any info and experience

There will always be another thing I don't know
When I learn it, I have become a little better inspector

You can also pick up a construction cost estimation book at Lowes.

If these are the guys out of Pennsyvainia I have found them to be honest and they pay on time.

Thanks for the replies. Sounds easy enough but how about liablility. eg....Bearing wall is defective (one of the entries on actual report)....'solution'....remove and install new bearing wall which conforms with structural engineering specs'......cost.....well i would have to guess, $1500......later I'm informed that the bill was $4000 and the buyer would like the difference. Is this possible?
thanks

I do a lot of work for them. They pay on time and let me set my cost. Thier forms are easy to fill in and I set it up so I do not give estimates for repairs.

not sure if they are still operating in the same manner as years ago.
Fidelity depends upon the inspector to have E&O to defend a claim.
do not depend upon Fidelity supporting you.
have the client sign your contract as well before providing the report.
