  1. Has anyone used VIP Home Inspections (www.best2inspect.com)? They do phased inspections for new construction, but the website leaves a bit to be desired. I should also ask if phased inspections are even worthwhile, or if a single inspection is OK for new homes? Thanks!
  2. Did you purchase your home prior to the TRCC going into effect? Did you have to create a SIRP to get into arbitration? When you signed, did you try to modify the contract so that you wouldn't have to resort to arbitration as the sole method of resolving the problems?

I'm planning on moving into town within the next year and have looked at some of the Lovett sites. On the outside, they look great, and knowing what might have happened inside the sheetrock is pretty important (especially for the price they sell at).
