^ This.

Even if they're attending, many people have no clue about homes.

Plenty of smart educated people don't know a gas meter from a water meter from an electric meter.

Other than mentioning client didn't attend in the report, I don't do anything different.

A local inspector told me he recently did an inspection with no client and the seller or agent called him a week later complaining about some of his comments during the inspection ...... I think he said it turned out the seller had a camera OR something called a RING that either recorded him or video taped his comments about this POS house.

I would love to see the video compared to what was documented in the report.
