Certified boiler.

I was handed a discloser statement yesterday with a line that read,

"boiler certified by XYZ boiler co."

Still not sure what it meant. What do you guys think?

It never did fire up.

Certified when? 1924??

It never did fire up.

Maybe that was a good thing. I just hate it when the weekend starts off with a trip to the emergency room.

It looks like you must have had a real fun time on that one. I love the valve on the water heater gas line.

There's a whole cottage industry developing for equipment certifications. We've all seen the roof cert guys; well, it's expanding into everything.

The basis of the enterprise is realtors send you work, and you certify everything is satisfactory with whatever they want you to certify.

This boiler is an excellent example of how completely worthless they are.

You did mention the asbestos, right?

Tomorrow when I do the report. The place was loaded with it last fall. someone has since removed most of it.

Short Drift. I looked at this trap last fall. It was much worse. The client walked. Another local inspector had also looked at this place at around the same time. They walked. The realtor screwed up and told me that the other inspector was the one who was recently contracted to do all the work on the house. You can't do that here. Needless to say, I missed lunch. This is the kind of small town nonesense I have to deal with. I'm a little pissed. Go ahead. Crank me up.

I don't see what you gripe is, that definately is a boiler.[:-banghea

Come on Tom, I expected more than that from you. LOL

Further development in this circus. I was informed this morning that the other inspector is now the home owner/flipper. My understanding is that he also owns a flipping business.

Tom, Chad, In regards to working on a home within five years of inspecting it, how does our licensing law work with this scenario?

I'm not Tom or Chad, but have some free time on my hands these days. I think that the law is put into place to protect the consumer. I don't see how it could/ should be illegal for him to inspect his own place and then fix it up himself, as long as he is properly licensed for all of the work that he did on his own.

I would agree if it were as simple as that.(read back a little) It's not, and this isn't the place to lay it all on the table. Forget it.

The law prohibits an inspector form working on a home in another capacity for 5 years after inspecting it. The only exception is to perform a new inspection for a subsequent buyer. I don't think that this portion of the law applies here.

I believe there is a section regarding inspecting a property in which the inspector has a financial interest, but I would have to look it up. Go to DOS site and read it, or look it up in your text book, you did keep those didn't you?
