So this morning I roll up to an inspection. There is a half built deck but the owner died and never finished it. With the deck in its condition, buyers would never get approved for financing. So they decided to front the money to finish the deck! The deck guys get there at the same time as me and get to work. The house had one of those crappy aquatherm hot water heating sytems and of course it wasn’t working. Thats when the light bulb went off for the buyer. If they decided to walk away, they had already invested in the house!! He told the deck guys they might need to stop working and called their realtor. Well I hear him and his wife fighting and the realtor was on the phone trying to calm them down. Then the DECK GUY tells me he inspected the water heater and heating system and it was fine. He was the one who installed the TPRV discharge pipe too! The TPRV discharge pipe was PVC and 12" off the ground. Well…the attic was covered in moisture stains and when I broke the news to the buyer, he lost it. He forced the deck/HVAC guys out of the house and said out loud 100 times: Why didn’t we get the inspection first?!
It was the most bizarre situation to date
Thats it. Now I have to write the report
