Recently did a home inspection for a home buyer in a rural area. Home vacant with lock box. Client Agent present. Client, home owner, home owner agent all absent from the inspection. Not an ideal situation. During the inspection I noted a small leak from a sharkbite valve below a toilet in the home.
The offer was withdrawn from the property for other reasons… am I liable if it has been leaking more or suddenly fails completely?
Should I contact the seller agent of the vacant home and advise them of the leak?
Thanks in advance!
