Can I advertise or recommend the use of services from certain service providers such as inspectors, moving companies, or repair contractors on my website? 

Yes. However, if you advertise the use of a service provider and expect to receive compensation from that service provider when someone uses his services, your ad must disclose that arrangement. Keep in mind that acceptance of certain fees from service providers may violate RESPA or other laws, so consult with an attorney about any fees you receive.

I’m not sure “Yes” is the correct answer to be offered for all of us out here who deal with this on a daily bases.  Of course you can if you disclose “everything”.  If you post it on your web site, compensation or not, what happens if a mover, inspector or any other professional you have recommended does not deliver or has made a huge mistake,  I’m not a lawyer, but I suggest trouble is soon to come.

If asked, I would offer a list of professional that have been used in the past and let the client decide.
