Committment to the Client: The ASHI Client Bill of Rights

EDITED BY ASHI STAFF

From choosing a neighborhood to hiring a real estate agent to buying the right home, it's easy for potential homebuyers to feel overwhelmed by all the decisions that go into the homebuying process. Who can one trust and what can he or she expect?

Just as the Founding Fathers of our country created the Bill of Rights to protect our citizens, the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) created the Client Bill of Rights to protect homebuyers.

Introduced in 2008, the ASHI Client Bill of Rights is a commitment that ASHI members make to their clients that they will uphold the highest standards and conduct a thorough, unbiased and honest evaluation of their home.

The ASHI Client Bill of Rights was derived from the ASHI Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics.  The full bill of rights follows:
