This is going to sounds like a total green question, but....

We've never done contact inspections before! We are working with a new client that has sent us some contact inspection work orders and I don't know how to handle them.

What exactly should/do/can you say to the property owner during these inspections?

Get it in writing from the issuer of the work order what you are to say.

I have seen 3 "privacy" lawsuit attempts (don't the outcome yet) on the contact inspectors.

NCCI asked us about these and after looking at the specs we declined. I'm not sure I want to get in the middle of the lender and the person with the issues with the lender....
Wish I could offer something more positive....
I'm thinking what Wannabe has said though. The company providing the inspections should have something scripted that they will want stated...

They usually provide you with a letter to deliver or phone numbers for you to dial and then hand (yes, your phone) to the mortgager.

Lol.. I know a realtor who does some of these and an investment company wanted to personally talk to the house-occuppant and she handed her brand new I Phone to the fella who promptly took the phone and shut the door. She called Police who was told "what phone? the lady is trespassing" She lost the phone......

I was asked to help do these. I would call their phone and 3 way the bank in and hang up once I put them on. That way I've got their number. And when we three way them in, the bank gets their number from me and the CID on their side. With the new find my iPhone app, the cops can find your phone.

I've thought about unlocking my old phones and put in unlimited simple mobile or AT&T go phone SIM cards in there. But I don't do Enough of these to justify the costs NCCI only wants to pay 55 to do them during prime time hours. Not worth the time or the money.
