......................."The whole industry is very erratic," said John H. Moss, a building
consultant who owns Inspex Building Inspections in Jersey City. "A prospective
buyer should get a home inspector from friends, relatives or a reputable real
estate broker or reputable real estate attorney." And according to Mr. Moss,
Mr. Dawson and other inspectors, when friends or family do recommend a home
inspector, prospective clients should ask about his qualifications and get the names of people for whom he
has done inspections. They should also make sure that the inspector will
present a detailed report afterward, not just a checklist that can be dashed
off in a few minutes.
Mr. Moss added that clients are becoming more sophisticated about home inspections, either because they owned houses previously or because of advice from friends or relatives who had inspections. Many clients, he said, expect both a thorough inspection and a thorough report.
