I have a personal friend that I met at a BNI chapter about 5 years ago.
He is a chiropractor and I inspected his home in 2004.
Nice house and few problems. He had a sump pump buried in his back yard that I recommended evaluation as wiring was exposed & I couldn’t test the pump.
My wife recently went to his office for a routine procedure when he stated that he called a plumber to do some work on his pump.
The first things out of the plumbers mouth is to sue the inspector.
The plumber has no idea when the report was done, what was stated on the report and I am angered as this is very common with contractors.
My friend the Chiropractor pulled my report showed the plumber and asked why should he sue the inspector?
It is very common for contractors like roofers, electricians, basement waterproofing companies to sound of on the inspector.
I just emailed my chiropractor to get the plumbers name & company because I will personally call him and arrange a time where I can meet him and well lets say take out my litigation frustrations.
I ask you other inspectors. Any suggestions to lessen the litigation from contractors?
