Release of Liability to inspect vacant house

I am very interested in purchasing a house that has been vacant for many years and is filled with a lot of junk. I want to inspect the house but the owner doesn’t want anyone inside because there is no liability insurance on the property. Am I crazy to sign a release of liability and is there some type of builders risk that would cover me if something were to happen? Thanks in advance for any advice.

If he doesn’t want you to inspect it, there may be a bigger reason than he has no liability insurance (which is not all that bright on his part!)…see if he will let you sign a limited release of liability that just applies to the time it would take you to inspect…
