Chris Bernhardt Posted May 15, 2007 Report Share Posted May 15, 2007 How do you handle the case where the buyer has asked the seller to repair per the recommendations in the inspection report and you said something like "have a plumber repair the loose toilet" and you don't know who repaired it? Because you wrote it to be repaired by a plumber does the inspector have the duty to confirm that the repair was actually done by a plumber or make some qualifing statement that you don't know if the person who did the repair was a plumber and to have that verfied? I can easily foresee a case where the buyer wanted and expected the repair to be done by a licensed plumber and the inspector although found the toilet to be adequately fastened to the floor at the time of the reinspection but then makes no statement qualifing who did the repair could become liable for a toilet repair that by contract was suppose to be done by a licensed plumber.
