Home Inspector Ethics
Ethics for Home Inspectors are always under fire. You are asking someone to provide you an opinion or one of the largest purchases you will ever make. You should be able to trust the Home Inspector.
But Can you?
ACSI Home Inspection’s Code of Ethics
- ACSI will provide a thorough and honest opinion of the home’s structure and integral components.
- ACSI will not accept nor make available commissions or allowances, directly or indirectly, and will always perform as a disinterested third party.
- ACSI will not accept compensation, monetary or otherwise, from more than one client regarding the same property without prior consent of all interested parties.
- ACSI will not pass judgment on the value of a property nor recommend the purchase of a property.
- ACSI will only perform home inspections on properties in which they have no interest in, present or contemplated.
- ACSI will not disclose any information regarding the inspection without the approval from the clients or authorized agent.
- ACSI will not profit from the corrections of issues noted at an inspection.
- ACSI will always conduct inspections in a professional manner with full respect for the clients and the property being inspected.
- ACSI will also follow the ASHI code of ethics and all state rules
The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) put together the first set of home inspection Standards as well as the first Code of Ethics for Inspectors.
Today we still follow these.
ASHI also created the Clients bill of rights. We feel you as the client have rights.
