This Inspection Agreement contains the terms and conditions of the contract between the Client and Glarenet, LLC (the Company).

This Inspection Agreement contains limitations on the scope of the physical inspection, remedies, exclusions, disclaimers, and liability.

By accepting this proposal through a signature, an email with explicit approval or by oral acceptance, the Client is effectively signing this agreement, with all the terms hereby expressed, and warrants the Company all necessary approvals to conduct the Infrared Thermographic Inspection of the Electrical Service of the Property (Thermography). The Client also warrants that they will read the entire Thermographic Inspection Report (Thermography Report) when received and shall promptly call with any questions or concerns they may have regarding the Thermography or the Thermography Report.

This Thermography inspection is being performed for the exclusive use and benefit of the Client, and the whole service, including the written Thermography Report, is not to be transferred to, utilized by, or relied upon to any other person or entity without prior written permission of the Company.

If the inspection is performed, the Parties Understood and Agreed as follows:

The Client cannot assign this agreement to any other provider other than the Company without our explicit consent.

The Agreement is enforced for all inspections that were quoted under the same proposal and performed at the same time. This also applies to subsequent inspections or re-inspections derived from the initial inspection.

Payments are to be made as stated in the proposal/communications provided. Payments for initial inspections and/or any re-inspections are to be made as follows:

  • A minimum retainer payment (80%) is required in advance, prior to physical inspection. The balance will be required to provide the preliminary report with the list of findings.

  • Payment could be done through cash, check payable to Glarenet, LLC, or through an electronic payment platform agreed by the parties. The Client will cover any transaction fee in addition to the Thermography price.

  • Once payment has been completed, the Company will issue an invoice covering the total cost of the Thermography service as quoted. Fees imposed by the government (county, city, etc), transaction fees incurred due to the payment method used and/or other charges not explicitly stated in the quote or proposal, will not be included in the invoice.

  • 80% of the cost in the invoice (non-refundable) is assigned to the inspection and notification of issues, the rest 20% is for the report, signed and sealed.

This Thermography Report is ONLY valid for the conditions existing at the time of the physical inspection of the property.

When a reinspection is required, a reinspection fee will apply as specified in the proposal.

Limitations on Time

  • After 60 days from the initial inspection, if an extension letter is needed, a re-inspection will be required, and a re-inspection fee will be charged. 

  • Extensions are only valid for 60 days. 

  • When an application for a permit has been submitted or when a permit has been issued, the validity of the report will be automatically nullified after 180 days of inactivity from the date of application or issuance. 

  • If no process has been submitted or no permit has been issued, the report will be automatically nullified after 180 days from the initial inspection or 90 days from the last re-inspection, whatever is longer. 

  • In no case the report will be valid for more than 360 days after the date of the initial inspection.

  • After the time permitted by our limitations, the report will be automatically nullified, the Engineer will have NO responsibility and NO obligation to reinspect. At the discretion of the Engineer, fees and conditions might be discussed for a "possible" re-inspection or new inspection. If parties do not agree with the fees and conditions, the Client will need to hire other professional.

The Client is responsible for making sure that all problems have been corrected before ordering a reinspection, otherwise, additional fees for subsequent re-inspections might apply.

Local government or other fees, cost, etc., associated with plans, designs, permits, etc., are NOT included in our proposal.

The inspection will be performed in compliance with the minimum inspection guidelines, laws, rules, standards of practice, policies, regulations, codes of the Municipality, County, State of Florida and/or Underwriters, when applicable for the type of inspection and with exceptions; items NOT directly specified in the Report were not inspected and are out of the scope.

The Company do NOT perform regular Home Inspections. We do NOT strictly follow the State of Florida Home Inspection Standards. At Glarenet, we are NOT Home Inspectors but PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERS. The Company could exceed the requirements stated in the minimum inspection guidelines to perform the Thermography or other required inspections.

Findings will be reported according to the specifications in the appropriate form for each type of inspection (Thermography or other).

Photos will be part of the Thermography Report if that requirement has been stated in the guidelines or constitute a requirement for evaluation.

The final report or deficiencies report will be provided within 5 business days from the time of the thermography inspection completion, unless some research, extra visit or documentation is needed or requested.

The Company is the exclusive author of the Thermography Report, which is not to be changed, modified, adjusted, or adapted by the Client or a third party.

The use of the Thermography Report by any unauthorized persons is prohibited.

Inspection reports are only valid for the persons named in the documents and are not valid for construction and/or planning purposes.

Client agrees not to disclose any part of the Thermography Report to any other person unless required as part of the actual purpose of the inspection.

The Client agreed to hold the inspectors, agents, and employees harmless for any and all actions/claims arisen due to an improper disclosure of this report to third parties.

This inspection is ONLY limited to readily visible defects.

The Inspector will NOT inspect for any deficiency on elements or areas, which are not exposed to view, are concealed, are inaccessible because of soil, walls, floors, carpets, ceilings, furnishing or in any other fashion, or otherwise difficult to inspect and cannot be visually examined.

As required by the guidelines, the Client will need to provide means of access and personnel required to gain access to inspect the roof, interior of electrical equipment, etc. The engineers performing the physical inspection will not engage in manual tasks.

The Client will provide a person at the time of the inspection, who at his/her own risk, will remove and reinstall the covers of all the electrical panels, switchgears and other electrical equipment being inspected. Hiring a qualified person with the tools to perform these tasks is the responsibility of the Client. Although not required, the hiring of an Electrical Contractor is recommended.
