Home Inspectors and Social Media

There is an alarming trend on social media where inspectors are posting violations observed during their inspections on Social media, this in itself is not a problem.

Where the problem comes in is when you post the violations and a picture of the outside of the home. The person your doing the inspection for doesn’t actually own the house yet, it still belongs to the seller.

If the seller didn’t sign off on you displaying the home and your findings you can put yourself in the crosshairs of a savvy attorney if the buyer doesn’t buy the house.

The results from the home inspection is now on the Internet and could possibly damage other potential sales.

Additionally, going live geo locates your position, as well as posting pictures from clients locations.

As an inspector, it’s always a good idea to have sellers and buyers sign wavier forms
