Every inspector's nightmare - You miss something on an inspection and later find yourself featured on the evening news with a lovely young lady talking about how your mistake has taken her life savings. Ouch!

How do you avoid something like this? It's very simple, really; inspect every single house slowly and carefully and like you were inspecting it for your own parents.

I don't know about you, but, if my client scheduled an inspection for a certain time and didn't show up, I wouldn't just do the inspection. I have had quite a few inspections where my client wasn't in town, but, that is different than a mix up in schedule. I am curious to hear the outcome. Looks to me like h dropped the ball big time on this one. 40k is a nice amount of money for a home repair.

Hi Rob,

I know it seems strange to you and me, but there are lots of places where it's routine for an inspector to do inspections without the clients there and then have them show up somewhere around the end of the inspection. Maybe this is one of those cases; still, it's hard to miss the kind of second stage rot that's obvious at that soffit unless you don't even bother to look for it.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!

It seems like every time a case like this comes up we never get to see the inspection report. At this point we don't know if the inspector missed something or not. I'm surprised the reporter does not hold up the report and say, "see, the inspector said everything was ok".

Typical head-hunting reporting, nothing to show any other side of the story.
