I purchased a house a couple months ago. The stair case to the second floor split in two. One wing goes to a guest room that was built as an extension above the attached garage. The other original wing leads to the original bedrooms. The home inspector said in his report that there was “no attic access” in the guest room extension.
Now that guest room is a lot colder/warmer than the original bedrooms in the other wing. The A/C workers said that the A/C was working perfectly in the guest room but that NO insulation was added to that section of the attic when the extension was built.
The A/C workers were actually able to get there by going through the attic access that is in the original wing and walk through the attic all the way to the part of the attic above the guest room extension.
Now my home inspector says that it wasn’t his responsibility to check that part of the attic because there was “no attic access” in that section. But I am arguing that there was an attic access because you can get there by going through the original attic access and walking through the attic.
So my question is: should he be held responsible for having checked that part of the attic or not?
