None of your business....or......

Home Inspector with Critical Home Inspections

Recently, I conducted an inspection on a home that was vacant. The tenants had moved out and some minimal staging had occurred.

I had found some minimal problems and had them written into my computer generated report when, about halfway through the inspection, the homeowner showed up.

When I was asked how it was going, and, did I find any problems, I had a momentary lapse of judgement.

Legally, my report belongs to my client, and, I did not have permission to share this report with anyone else.

Anyhow, my lapse of judgement led me to tell the owner some of the problems I had found.

Let me add that I am generally a quick judge of character and had deemed the Homeowner to be a "nice guy".

After each problem that I told him about, such as, the GFCI above the kitchen counters wasn't working, A couple of loose shingles, a 12' tree within close proximity to the structure had a root system that was beginning to go under the slab, a couple of other minor things...... After each problem.He said "No problem, I'll take care of that"....

I gave him a list of the problems and told him that they would be reflected in my report. I also informed my client, the buyer, of the exchange between me and the seller, which my client had no problem with.

Fast forward...... The Homeowner corrected all the problems, My client was very happy that all problems had been corrected, and I got a nice thank you card from my buyers agent.

Happy Happy all the way around.
