Liability issues? This home has a few.

Home Inspector with Desert Sun Home, commercial Inspections 10072923

Liability issues This home has a few.

This is exactly why you need to get inspections before you sell or you buy a home. If the seller would have had a pre listing inspection before listing the home these  issues would have never been an issue with the home that is for sale at this time. They could have been taken care of before the buyer even looked at the home.

At Desert Sun Home Inspections, we try and give the buyer the most information possible when buying a home.

This inspector found the issues with this home. These liability issues with this home need to be addressed as soon as possible.

Lets take a look at the areas that are in question.

This broken off sewer plug is a liability issue. There is a lawsuit just waiting to happen.

Broken off sewer plug.

This is never a good thing to see when inspecting a home for a buyer.

This steel post had been broken off at ground level. Now the sharp edges are sticking up for someone to find with their feet and there is another lawsuit just waiting to happen.

Steel post broken off at ground level.

Have a great day everyone.

The strange thing about these is that, in my opinion, they are normal maintenance issues and should have been repaired as a part of every-day living.

Clint, pre-listing inspections are a great idea, it certainly does provide buyers with a bit more certainly when buying a home.

You'd be the man to let them know what and how things need to be done pre-sale.

Clint: Doesn't it make your hair stand up when you see problems like this that should have been resolved before the home went on the market?!

You seem to be looking down a lot, not exactly following the "Keep Looking Up' exhortation. Of course if looking down means no lawsuit, then see all.

Morning Clint I knew you would find him again.  I told him the same thing but he would not listen to me.  Anyway I won't mention his name but you know who I'm talking about.

Another thing that can happen is running over something like that with the lawn mower.  What a disaster that could be should a blade break off and hit a leg or foot.

Hello Roger,

Many home owners are blinded by the fact they see this stuff every single day. They know to side step the problem. Never taking care of the problems.

Thanks for the comment and stop back any time.

H Adrian,

This is a very good reason to get a pre listing inspection. These issues would have been resolved before the home was shown for the first time.

Have a great day in Seattle my friend.

Hi Mr. Bond.

A simple pre listing inspection would have found the issues for this seller. 'nough said.

Have a great day in Fairport Harbor.

Hi Anita,

Yes it doe's. I hate to see this stuff. Simple things that could have been avoided with a little effort.

Have a great day and week ahead in Warner Robins Georgia.

Hi Debbie,

Every home inspector needs to look for liability issues as well as the rest of the potential issues with a home.

Thanks for the comment. Have a great day in New Jersey.

Thank you Joshua,

Now you can add this to your knowledge of home inspections and what you can tell the home owners to help them in everyday liability issues.

Have a nice day in New York City.

Hi James,

I can't blame this one on him. This is fully the home owner not doing their job as a home owner. Having liability issues is not a good thing.

Have a great day in Rogers my friend.

Hi Jay,

This has already been done. The two pipes have been broken off from a mower hitting them. But they were never lowered to eliminate the problems.

Makes no sense.Have a good day in Bristow my friend.

These could be more than liability issues Clint as you rush your kid to the ER after falling on a sharp object.
