Authorization and Release for Electronically Recording an Inspection

A video inspection is an inspection you capture on video using recording equipment – such as a drone, video camera/GoPro, smartphone, thermal imager, etc. – and deliver it to your client with your report.  This added value shouldn't come at an unintended cost for you. To protect yourself, it’s best to obtain the owner’s written approval for the recording in advance. That's why InterNACHI® developed a Video Authorization and Release for you use to obtain the owner’s written permission before you begin your inspection.

Operating a drone is easy and can be learned through many drone piloting schools around the U.S.  A savvy home inspector is always looking for ways to generate more business, and offering drone inspections is a state-of-the-art distinction you can promote to prospective clients and real estate agents alike.
