Home Inspector Bud Rozell----->
Home inspections by state licensed inspectors are one of the best additions that have been made to the real estate industry in my lifetime.
I personally make it a point to schedule my time where I can be present for 100% of the time an inspector is evaluating the condition of a home one of my clients intends to purchase.
It helps me better interpret the report that follows and its nuisances for my client and myself.
Probably because for a major part of my career I was a hired expert witness for many plaintiffs who were damaged by a property owner's disregard for safety on his property, I purposely zero in on safety issues.
One thing that I find interesting is that often times a seller bought a home where their inspector pointed out many safety deficiencies; however, they never corrected them.
Now that owner is attempting to pass that home and those deficiencies to the next buyer -- my client.
So what are some of them?
- No operable smoke alarms in every bedroom, and other places throughout the house.
- Electrical outlets without grounds, others near sinks and other water supplies without GIF safety breaker outlets.
- Gerrymandered air conditioning equipment and hot water heaters that can easily bring carbon monoxide into the living quarters.
I wonder the purpose of home inspections if action isn't required to be taken to resolve the issues reported?
