I'm hoping this post finds a few savvy home inspectors here on ActiveRain! I had a situation recently, where the home inspector missed some MAJOR water damage in the crawl space - in fact - it's hard to believe he even went down there, and didn't note the OBVIOUS moisture, and mold!
Please don't think I'm ragging on home inspectors - I'm not! I know there are good and bad ones in every profession, including (and especially!) with REALTORS! But this guy just must have been being absolutely lazy. There was obvious mold in the crawl space of this home, which was built in 1978. The buyer ordered a full inspection, and the report didn't note ANY water damage, moisture, or mold, but the inspector claimed he went into the crawl space! The buyer (after the sale) contacted the home inspector, and got NO response, after several calls and emails, and finally called a lawyer. The lawyer sent a letter to the home inspector, which noted the damage, and basically said the cost to fix this problem would be high, and that the buyer would not have purchased the home had this been discovered by the home inspector! The inspector's lawyer sent back a letter basically stating that he is not liable because the contract signed said the max liability on the home inspector's part is the cost of the inspection ($375). Buyer's lawyer said that will never hold up in court...
I'm really just looking to see if anyone here has been through this, or if any inspectors on here can tell me about an inspectors liability in missing something so obvious! Buyer hires a home inspector to find these things out BEFORE purchasing the home...
Please comment if you have ever been in this situation, or are a home inspector with some knowledge about this!
