If you are a new client, thank you for choosing Cameo to perform your property inspection, we appreciate it! Now, before the actual inspection, it is important that you take some time to review two important documents.
The first is an Introduction which will help you understand all about the inspection including what will be inspected and how the inspection will proceed. Reviewing this helps prevent any misunderstandings and will ensure a common set of expectations between you and the inspector.
The second is the Service Contract. Simply print the document and fill it in as directed. Be sure to review the document carefully before you sign it and bring the signed original with you to the inspection. Should you be unable to attend the inspection, you may fax back a copy to 360-491-6040. If you are unable to print the document or make a copy for yourself, be sure to let us know.
You will find links to the Introduction and Service Contract at the bottom this screen. Both are in a PDF format and you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to open them. Should you have trouble opening the documents, it is likely you do not have the latest version of Adobe Reader. Whether you lack Adobe Reader, or the newest version, the download/upgrade is free at the link below.
