There is a local inspection company here that filled out a checklist report and the house was inspected and the buyer bought it and was happy to be installing his new wood floors…well…the installer had a moisture meter and was showing the NEW owner the elevated moisture readings in the flooring. Upon removal of some sheetrock it was noted that there was signficant water intrusion behind the stucco.
Now my question is, what should happen? If you don’t know, wood framed houses in SW Florida are difficult to sell. They are much more likely to get this water intrusion and for termites to happen. But he relied on the inspector to inform him. It is VERY easy to tell the difference and he must have brain farted. But the new owner stated he NEVER would have bought a wood framed house. I believe him, not many do. So once again what should happen in this situation? Everything says CBS, but I promise you its wood frame. The tax rolls say CBS, the listing says CBS and the home inspection says CBS…Just wondering what you guys think. Thanks in advance for taking time out to reply…NACHI ROCKS!
