Home Inspection Cleveland Ohio
















 (440) 521-5399 With foreclosures still prevalent in cuyahoga county. As a home inspector I see this more often than I would like to. At this home inspection Cleveland, Ohio the water main is disconnected at the meter. A common practice done by the utility company for the bank to protect the home from freezing pipes during the winter. This also prevents the intrusion of mold if a pipe should burst...which can be a big deterrent from a future buyer from buying the home. This home was discounted $140,000 dollars from its sales price from three years ago.

 The problem with doing these types of inspection when the water is off is the plumbing cannot be inspected. So on top of the price for a home inspection the buyer is gonna pay another $100.00 dollars to have our firm come back out to inspect the plumbing systems. I guess that is a small price to pay seeing they bought this home at a big discount.

So true. We had our home inspected and the water was off due to foreclosure. When we had the water turned back on, the pipes had two breaks in them.

A friend of mine bought a house in the winter time from a younger couple that had already moved out 3 months earlier. They had a home inspector from www.pillartopost.com come in an do an inspection, but noted that the water main was shut off. Naturally he thought it was due to the cold winter and not wanting the pipes to freeze, but shortly after he realized that the were 2 cracks in the system. The long and short of it was that is costed him over $15,000 in damages, and he had to get everything re-inspected after the fact to make sure nothing else had gone wrong. Makes me want to think twice if a house is not fully functional.

Out here it's sometimes difficult to do inspections because all the copper wiring and copper water pipes have been stripped out of the home and sold. I've had several inspections canceled this year because of that but eventually the Clients find a property that actually has electric and water.
