I'm not siding with the homeowner either, just in this case I didn't read that they were the stereotypical 125% mortgaged, 70% loan to debt ratio'd deadbeats that made a large majority of the defaulters. I didn't even read that anyone could confirm they had the right address.
I've had some of those same manilla envelopes hung on doorknobs to our properties; some not even filled out. The inspector hit the wrong house. That's what $6 paid, but anyway.
If the inspector is attempting to contact the homeowner by ringing the bell, knocking on the door, etc, on behalf of Safeguard and then the client, and then either handing them a phone or having them contact the lender in their presence, or providing the number to do so, they are acting in the behalf of said lender. They are an agent/rep. That's my law 101 but I'd say someone who wants to go after them and took law 201 or higher may make some headway.
