 I just put up a blog this morning titled, Published Twice in One Week. Well Mr. Joseph Hagarty of House Master Home Inspections of West Chester PA responded to the blog with another article where I was quoted several times as a source. I don't know how Joe found it, but I am sure glad he did and I thank him for bringing it to my attention.

Here is the article:

Keep your house clean or else!
Rebecca Kelleher

Some Quinnipiac students have learned the hard way of what happens when moving into an uninhabitable house. Within the past year, students have been evicted from their houses half way through the year due to decrepit living conditions.

These students were unaware of the risky situation they put themselves into. However, there are some helpful tips that may reduce the chances of becoming homeless mid-way through the school year.

Home inspector Jim Quarello of JRV Home Inspection Services located in Wallingford, Conn., suggests keeping an eye out for issues concerning mold.

"When you're looking for a place to rent, watch out for water staining, leaky roofs and musty odors. These could be good indicators for mold problems," Quarello said.

What one would think to be the most obvious advice is, do not settle for a home that doesn't look kept up.

"Chances are, the landlord you're renting from hasn't been doing a good job maintaining the building. In many instances, houses such as these have been sold over many times before and are more likely to have serious problems," Quarello explained.

Another suggestion that Quarello makes is to rent houses or condominiums, rather than multi-family homes.

"Avoid multi-family homes because there isn't much of a profit margin and as a result, they usually aren't kept up well," Quarello said.

Although Quarello says that he has never had an incident with Quinnipiac students being evicted from their homes, he reiterates the importance of using common sense when searching for a place to live.

I commented on this post in the Newbies group before they deleted it. Both of your posts in that group have been deleted.

It's seems like they do not like  home inspectors posting in there group even if the info can help someone.

I think you where helping the folks in that group with some fine info.

I have lost count of how many posts I have had deleted in that group. So now all I do is make comments in there just to show them I will not go away.

Sorry they are like that James. Your a very good inspector that goes out of his way to post some very good and helpful info for folks to read.

Have a good one

Dale
