I'm looking for feedback from current ISN users. Because of the way ISN associates agreements with Inspection Types, the iterations of Inspection Types tend to add up if you have, for instance, agreements for a standard inspection, pool/spa, thermal imaging, and termite. I'm considering having just one contract and dumping the iterations.

My questions are:

1. Do any of you have a single contract with sections?
2. If you don't have a consolidated agreement, what does your online booking look like and does it cause problems with your clients that do book online?

What are the essential differences in language between services? If each isn't too onerous, you could just insert each piece as a numbered item. It shouldn't add too much length to the document. Heck, after all the paperwork it takes to purchase a house the inspection agreement is a cake walk!

Hey Kris!

We have 1 standard agreement with "sub sections" that a client can refer to if that particular service is scheduled. For example:

Standard Residential Inspection with Pool & Spa

it works with 1 agreement because we aren't ever going out to do JUST a pool and spa... although, if you did.... you may want to consider a separate agreement/inspection type.

Although ISN can send out as many agreements as you wish based on the inspection type I recommend not sending too many. Add verbiage such as "IF you are getting a Termite inspection .............. at the bottom of your standard agreement. It works great and and keeps things simple

Dan helped me re-write my agreement like he just described and I like how it is simple and covers what I need.
