The title is enough to grab you and make you want to read this. I promise it is worth your time.
Recently I had a home inspection on a property it was one of my listings . It was a vacant listing the sale did not go through . My seller who is very conscientious checks on this property weekly . When she walked into the property she found the electrical panel box sitting on the floor . There was an electrical outlet plug left unscrewed from the wall . The radon canisters that were supposed to be picked up still there . There were also footprints on the pool table above which hung a light fixture . Needless to say the seller was very upset .
Sitting on the kitchen counter was the buyers agents business card . Instead of calling me she called the agent as she was very upset . She wanted to know why her house was left like this . She also demanded the radon canisters be removed immediately . They had been sitting there for five days longer then it should have . The seller then called me . I was also upset but we both agreed it would not get us anywhere .
The house is back on the market so having radon canisters hanging is not something that should be there . The other agent promised the canisters would be removed that day (was not ) and apologized .
An Electrician is going over tomorrow to fix the other items . Now the flood lights are on we do not know how to shut them off . Today I finally received a call from the radon company asking for access to pick up the canisters Hopefully they remove them
Would you as a buyer's agent call the listing agent to explain or just lock up and leave the house ?
Is There Home Inspection Etiquette ?
