I can only say, everyone should have listened to me when I proposed a standardized form and even offered one ready to go.


That is a $425.00 4-point inspection.

Thank (insert your favorite whatever) that State Farm doesn't really want to write any policies down here in Florida!

Who is to say they won't start? Of course, with that form, there won't be many issued!
I guess the cat is out of the bag now, so, in order to whittle down Citizens customers, they are going to be placed with other carriers. Those other carriers will gladly take those policies, provided they are all newer, hurricane resistant homes and in better condition than a majority of the older homes. Cherry picking was the term I used previously.

Of course, anyone with a home that is more than 30 years old, will have to get forced-placed insurance, which will increase their mortgage payment forcing them into foreclosure. At which point, the banks will resume illegally foreclosing on people...but that is for a later rant!

I have no problem with their form other than the title of it as a "4 point inspection". That is funny. Clearly, their inspection form far exceeds 4 points. Unfortunately, there will be many "inspectors" that will be willing to provide the inspection for $50.

What are you guys going to place in the section for septic systems? Are we to now hire a septic operator to comment on the condition?

The question is can this form hold us liable? Why would you get a "Home Inspection" when you can get one of these. I think I will charge almost the same as my home inspection fee for one of these, because my liability will be the same.

This is totally ridiculous! That is a mini + a 1/2 Home Inspection and more. I will charge the same as a CHI. Liability is higher than a CHI + the State Farm has the option Not to accept it. So, you will have to either return the money to your client or go back to re-assess and re-write to conform to someone's criteria. Non-sense!! You all can have them all.....

We could all just refuse to perform these inspections from State Farm for any price, but if history is any indication in less than a week you'll all be stepping on your dicks to to these for $50. Makes me laugh.
