Metropolitan Association of Home Inspectors

Agreements & Other Documents

The legal documents below were created through the compilation of many of our veteran members' inspection agreements. Forms are provided in MS Word format for ease of use. Have your attorney review any of these forms you intend to use to make sure your specific interests are protected. These forms do get updated periodically, so check back sometimes to see if these forms are dated more recently than yours.

This form should be filled out by clients who are making an initial claim. The purpose is for them to provide a written account of the issue so that it can be held against any changes in the story later on.

This document is a bit of case law provided by Ivan Kaplan from a case in which he was involved. This is a result of a vexatious appeal where the defendants (Kaplan, et. al.) again prevailed. If you are involved in a claim, show this to your attorney. It not only upholds our limit of liability, but also allows for the defendants to recover defense costs. This alone could shut down many a frivolous claim when the plaintiff attorney reads it.
