If you still think you're not being treated fairly, call up another RE agent in the area. Ask them what happens if you get into a contract, have an inspection done, and the contract is terminated.

I wouldn't do this. In some states unless you have signed a buyer's agency with a specific Realtor, they are not allowed to represent the buyer's interest and are still legally bound to represent the seller. No agent will give him a straight up answer to this question, even if presented as hypothetical. Why would someone without promise of pay put themselves out on a limb like that, particularly to someone who is clearly disgruntled? To get the business of course, which means telling him what he wants to hear even if not true.
