1. CLIENT: I hereby request a limited visual inspection of the structure, for my sole use and benefit. I understand I am bound by all the terms of this agreement. I further warrant that I will read the entire inspection report when I receive it. I understand and agree that this inspection is not an invasive or
technically exhaustive inspection. It may not identify latent conditions or concealed defects. All inspection fees are due and payable at or before the time of the inspection.  

2. THE REPORT: The inspection report is comprised of the written or e-mailed report, any photos e-mailed and or mailed plus any additional verbal or e-mail updates which are followed up by or with a written addendum.

3. USE OF REPORT: This report is for the sole use of the Client. It may be shared only with parties directly related to this real estate transaction and specifically not to other potential buyers. Inspector accepts no responsibility for this report in the event of unauthorized distribution. Receipt of this report
by any purchasers of the property other than the listed Client is strictly prohibited. The report for this property is copyright protected and may not be reproduced or distributed without the express written consent of Pride Property Inspections and Client named in this contract. Client agrees to indemnify,
defend, and hold Inspector harmless from any claims arising out of unauthorized distribution of the report.

4. SCOPE OF INSPECTION: The scope of the inspection and report is a limited visual inspection of the general systems and components of the home. It is to identify any system or component, which may be in need of immediate major repair. The inspection will be performed in compliance with both
NACHI and AZ Standards of Practice, a copy of which is available upon request or included with this report. The inspection is a snapshot in time of the condition of the property. The report describes the condition at the time of the inspection only. Client and/or Client’s Representative(s) are responsible
for their own safety during the inspection.                                                                     X____________

5. INSPECTION LIMITATIONS: Any area that is not exposed to view or is inaccessible because of ceilings, walls, floors, soil, furnishings, and wall or floor coverings are not included in this inspection. Any concealed items or safety considerations that would limit access for viewing of the system or
component is not included. PPI cannot determine the integrity of the thermal seal in dual pane windows.  The inspection will not include any area that has access or clearance less than 30 inches in any direction, or is not accessible from a 12 foot ladder. No verbal statements or information provided as a
courtesy by the Inspector shall take precedent over the inspection report. PPI will be held harmless for any defects or deficiencies that are alleged to exist beyond the generally accepted Standards of Practice. The Inspector is a generalist and is not acting as a licensed engineer or expert in any trade or craft. If
the Inspector recommends consulting other specialized experts, Client must do so at Client’s expense. The report reflects the general condition, not necessarily all explicit conditions if they should be excessive. It is not a home warranty, guarantee, insurance policy or appraisal of any kind. It is not a
substitute for any legally required disclosures, does not attempt to identify building code violations. The inspector is not able to detect the presence of Chinese Drywall. The issues of Chinese Drywall (and its potential problems) are beyond the scope of the inspection report. It is not a standard or regulatory
compliance inspection, or a check of the adequacy, efficiency or life expectancy of a system or component. Inspector makes no warranty, expressed or implied of any system or component. It also excludes determination of insurability from the scope of the inspection. Not a geological or soils condition
report, not a wood destroying organism report, not an environmental, mold, moisture, or engineering analysis nor does PPI inspect for rodents or pests. The inspection does not include asbestos, radon, formaldehyde, lead, water, wells or air quality analysis. Client is urged to contact a specialist for testing of
the above items if desired.    X____________

6. LIMITS OF LIABILITY:  Client agrees to assume the risk of all losses greater than the fee paid for this inspection. Client agrees to immediately accept a refund of the fee paid as full settlement of any and all claims that may ever arise from this inspection.  The liability of the Inspector’s principals, agents,
subcontractors, and employees is likewise limited.  This liability limitation is binding and includes Client and Client’s spouses, heirs, principals, assigns and anyone else who may otherwise claim through Client.

7. DISPUTES: Any dispute concerning the interpretation of this agreement, inspection or report, shall be resolved informally between the parties or by non-appealable binding arbitration conducted in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association. The parties shall select an arbitrator who
is familiar with the home inspection industry.

the commencement of any repair or replacement work.  Failure to provide written notification and access for evaluation will release PPI of any and all liability concerning this inspection.   

9. SEVERABILITY: Should a court find any part of this agreement disagreeable, the provisions remaining will be in full force and effect.

10. ATTORNEY’S FEES: In the event of any legal action by Client against PPI, and if PPI prevails, Client shall pay any attorneys fees, arbitration expenses and any other costs.

11. REPORT CLARIFICATION:  If Client has questions about any portion of this report, it is the Client’s responsibility to consult with the Inspector. Inspector is not responsible for report misunderstanding resulting from the failure to request clarification. The Inspector will make every effort to explain
the report and help Client understand all statements.

12. AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE: In the event that the Client is not present and the representing Real Estate Agent or Client’s Representative signs on the behalf of the Client, it shall have the same effect as the Client’s complete authorization.

way, binds the Client to the terms and limitations as noted in the Standards of Practice.
