Default third party billing

Good afternoon,

My first time posting so I hope I'm doing this correctly. I am licensed in Texas and was unable to find out information on this particular topic online. I was wondering if it is allowed for me to pay for ancillary inspections for a client such as WDI and then bill that to my customers as long as the customer is aware that it is being done by a third party and not in any way associated with our company other than a pass through?

Thanks for your help!

In your example with WDI inspections this is covered in the Texas Occupations Code, Structural Pest Control law found here OCCUPATIONS CODE CHAPTER 1951. STRUCTURAL PEST CONTROL . In short if you read Section 1951.003 you will see you can not even advertise WDI inspections let alone sub-contract them. Of course that doesn't seen to stop many Inspectors here who choose to ignore the laws.
