Today I came across a NACHI member conducting fraudulent wind mitigation inspections. I went into an attic and his card was on the rafter along with five or six marker lines. It was dated Feburary of this year. The lines were no more than 4 inches apart. I am sure he took a picture of this and sent it in as 6 inch nailing. This roof was put on prior to 1992 (still had staples) and the nailing pattern was 12 inches, which could be seen by shiners in the attic. Most of the house had impact windows, but some did not. I would love to see this report. It is however a moot point, because that buyer did not purchase the property.
He also did a 4 point inspection. I wonder if he knew the roof needed to be replaced, the fuses will need to be replaced, the water heater was 26 years old, and there was a leak in the master bathroom, among other things.
He is obviously new to Florida. His web site has a sample report of a home in North or South Carolina (I forget which).
Just curious how you fellow inspectors would handle this. This is flat out wrong and fraud. Ethically, I have an obligation to turn him into the state (I have no idea if he has a license - it was not listed on his web site). Or at the least, should’nt Citizens be notified. This is the type of inspector who is ruining business for all of us by issuing these types of reports.
Feedback is greatly appreciated.
