  1. Here's a link to an online book that you can order for free, it doesn't have all the answers but it is very informative, it can at least provide you with questions to ask your attorney when setting up a plan to protect your assets as best you can. There are other information sources available online, the trick is, at least it was for me, to learn enough about the subject so that you can ask half way intelligent questions. http://www.rjmintz.com/apptoc.htm
  2. I believe some FHA/VA Appraisers are using our inspection reports to save them time and effort, hence drive by Appraisals. As FHA/VA Appraisers they have the power to call for a complete home inspection, most buyers gladly give them a copy of the HI report to avoid paying for another one.

  4. Lewis (and Raymond), You guys seemed well versed in the Nachi 'drama'. Tell us why people who leave that organization (forced out or otherwise) seem to go back. There must be something over there that draws them back! Darren www.aboutthehouseinspections.com I have no idea why anyone would go back to Nick's Club once they had left for what ever reason. Me I was kicked out for being disagreeable, argumentative, and non=supportive of Nachi policies and programs, really it was for posting and link on another inspectors message board that embarrassed the Nachi Great Ones, the re
  5. Sorry Mike but gross hypocricy sometimes sets me off. Anyway what Raymond says happened to him pertains to the subject of this thread and offers the answer to the original question. Yes some associtions "stifle" dissenting opinions, one in particular.
  6. Now that's funny Ray, as a past defender of everything Nick/Nachi and as a former member of Bushart's Attack Pack don't you think that you may be acting like a hypocrit after attacking others and defending Nick, the ESOP Committee, CMI who have had the same thing happen to them? I do understand you dismay at what happened to you but myself and others have been warning Nachi members not to disagree with the Great Ones for years. You and Cookie both attacked me for my views on your "Free Speech" message board, as I have explained repeatedly the only rule in Nachi is "Don't disagree with the

  8. It's difficult sometimes to just buy the motor, and not much cheaper, if the housing is okay, just buy a new unit of the same type, remove the new fan from the housing, and install it in the old housing, a screw or two and a couple of wire nuts. Easy job.
  9. I've been surfing the APA Website again, it's amazing the amount of useful information that can be found there, and the amount of time you can spend following very interesting links. Here's a good one to add to your websites if you don't already have it. http://www.freefrommold.org/
  10. Here's a link to APA's "Customer Service Tip: Assessing Water Damage After A Flood". Very timely for those living in Western Washington and other flood areas. Every time APA sends me an email, I end up spending an hour cruising their website, a great knowledge base made available to all by APA. You do of course have to register, I've never received any spam from them, just an occasional email. Here's the link, look around the website, there's a lot more info available for the amazing price of $0.
  11. This article was submitted to a 1999 Louisville Sentinel contest to find out who had the wildest Christmas dinner. This won first prize. Christmas with Louise As a joke, my brother used to hang a pair of panty hose over his fireplace before Christmas. He said all he wanted was for Santa to fill them. What they say about Santa checking the list twice must be true because every Christmas morning, although Jay's kids' stockings were overflowed, his poor pantyhose hung sadly empty. One year I decided to make his dream come true. I put on sunglasses and went in search of an
  12. And that suggests what??? Fooled Twice but not Three Times? Actually Joe, for once you're fairly accurate. I was "fooled twice" but not the third time. Once I fell for a marketing scam that told me if I set through 16 hours of classroom lectures I would be an Expert in Mold Testing, then I fell for the $200 off testing equipment only during the "Convention.....yep, I was fooled twice. Then I got home and started thinking about it, why would I use the scare tactics taught at your Convention to sell unnecessary Mold Inspections to clients who were purchasing homes that had no
  13. I have a ProLab Mold kit, pump etc. that has been living under my desk for two years and has never yet made it out of its box. Once I thought mold inspections might be a good idea, then I studied the subject some more and decided I didn't want anything to do with it, helped along by many posts from Caoimhín P. Connell the Industrial Hygeinist who has posted here quite often, and has been very helpful to those who have read his posts and the websites he provided. Here's a link he posted that these Mold Guys in the video should have read. Great information, thanks again Caoimhin! http:
  14. Do you mean the newspeople, setting people up, claiming false headaches; or the mold guys? I'd say it was the guys who wanted to charge $450 for a lab test and several thousand dollars to re-mediate mildew and mascara. Who else is going to keep business like these, including Home Inspectors, honest if not the media? Most homeowners would have paid these guys what they asked from total lack of knowledge, the same goes regrettably for the Home Inspection business, where in many States all you need is a business card, a flashlight, and a screwdriver.......some may save the expense of t
  15. Here's an interesting link to a KNBC investigation of Mold Inspection Companies, unbelievable http://video.knbc.com/player/?id=189429
