Just a Home inspection, not a septic inspection. They did not sign the contract but when they received the home inspection report they were supposed to sign it but never did. There is a clause over and under the signature line that states:
Failure to contact ____________within three days of receipt of this report regarding questions with this agreement, constitutes acceptance and understanding of its specifications & Limitations.
They paid already but the septic system went bad three weeks later. I dont inspect septic systems nor is there any reference to septic systems in any of my reports. they now say that I am at fault because I should have advised them to have a septic inspection on the home.
Thanks so much for the positive rating and generous bonus, it is very much appreciated!
It was my pleasure to work with you and help with your question. Please feel free to ask for me if you need help with anything in the future and I will do everything I can to help or get you to someone who can.
