We appreciate that many people will experience disruption to their daily lives and routines as Governments and local authorities implement measures to mitigate the spread and ultimately the effects of COVID-19. On Monday, March 30th, 2020, the State of Michigan Department of Insurance & Financial Services announced that in line with Executive Order 2020-21, Inspection Services are considered “Critical Infrastructure” and vital to the financial process. With that in mind, Home Inspection Professionals is accepting limited inspection appointments.
Our inspection team will follow the social distancing guidelines from the CDC. In addition to the previously posted modifications, effective 03/30/2020 – Home Inspection Professionals is requesting that our clients NOT attend inspections at this time. It is our intent to limit the potential exposure to our inspectors as well as the clients and agents we serve. This is a big change for us as we would normally recommend all of our clients to attend the inspection. We treat every inspection as an education for the buyer and just as our children have been moved to online or home based learning, so have our inspections.
Here at HIP we’re embracing technology that allows us to prepare our inspections onsite including all photos and adding video where necessary to the reports. Our reports are available online instantly and are fully interactive. We’re reaching out to clients via video chat services to explain defects or areas of concern that might need clarification and as always, we’re here to answer your questions after you’ve reviewed your report.
At Home Inspection Professionals we’re doing our best to provide service as needed for our clients and agents as well as respect our responsibilities as a business in adhering to the Executive Orders and CDC Recommendations. If you have questions on how our inspection process has changed or would like to schedule an appointment, please feel free to call the office at (586) 443-5042 for more details.
