Huntsville, Alabama, June 3, 2008 - 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 home-buying 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.

“Few things in life come with a guarantee,” said Bill Loden, author of the ASHI Client Bill of Rights and President of Insight Building Inspection in Madison, Alabama.  “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.  It’s another demonstration of professionalism and ethical commitment so their clients can feel confident about the decision to choose an ASHI Certified Inspector.”

According to Bill Loden, who is also national chairman of the ASHI Ethics Committee, the Client Bill of Rights was designed to help the general public and clients of ASHI members better understand how the ASHI Code of Ethics serves them.  “It shifts the focus from the inspector to the client,” said Loden.  “Our ethics are no longer simply a set of rules that our members strive to follow, they are more a commitment they offer their clients.”

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

ASHI Client Bill of Rights

Fulfilling this obligation will promote and preserve public confidence in the profession. In recognition of this obligation, we hereby promote and proclaim these rights for our clients.
