klondike97009 Posted March 7, 2007 Report Share Posted March 7, 2007 Hello all, I recently inspected a home and the attic access panel was not properly installed/supported at the time of inspection. The panel could fall from the ceiling and pose a safety issue. I clearly stated this in the delivered report to my client(Buyer)and recommended repairs by a licensed contractor. About 3 weeks later I get a call from the home owner saying that the panel had fallen from the ceiling, almost hit her and damaged the panel cover and the ceiling. She now says it is my fault that it fell and wants me to make the repairs or threatens a liability insurance claim if I dont fix it. My question is, should I make the repairs and suck it up as I know for a fact I did nothing to cause the defect or should I be covered due to the fact that the defect was noted in the report. Thanks for any input and thoughts. Brian Burns MHHI Portland Or Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
