Now that I am involved in my first law suite.
I want to try to add more disclaimers and additional information to try to let the client understand that there are limitations to inspecting drainage.
I do note if there are covered walls/storage/fresh paint and if I see the sign of moisture at the floor & wall I will report that the drain tiles appear to be plugged and recommend scoping.
Does anyone scope the drain tiles with a telescopic camera?
The suite I am involved in is for broken drainage tiles. There was no signs on the exterior and I did document 2 large trees that can cause damage & blockage. I also thought I had enough disclaimers and info in my report.
But as most expierenced inspectors know if someone wants to sue you the will.
The reason I am posting this here is that I would like to ask how other inspectors report or disclaim on drainage & grading. I read Dr. swifts article and will add that to my remarks portion of my report.
Any information would be appreciated.
I am so happy to be paying the 2500 deductable for something I couldnt see and also documented as such.
I hope my lawyer can counter claim for the deductable, time lost and as the plantiff is stating Pain & suffering. Yea he is the pain & I am suffering.
