WOW! That’s the thinnest report that I have ever seen.
Remarkably few findings for a report that starts of by declaring that the home “appears to have excessive deferred maintenance”
I like that the static water pressure is 40-60 psi, and the floor and ceilings have vertical splits in the bricks.
According to the inspector, she now needs to hire the following for additional evaluation
- a structural engineer to evaluate the attic that had no defects
- An electrician
- An HVAC contractor
- A plumber
Guess she could have just started out by hiring all of the individual trades and skipped the home inspector all together. Looks like a drive-by. Was he even at the house an hour before he finished the inspection and report? This report is an embarrassment to the profession.
I always tell prospects who are price shopping that home inspections are not commodities and that there are vast differences between companies. This inspection proves the point.
I certainly wouldn’t want to sit in front of a TREC panel and try to convince them that this was a conforming inspection.
Here are some sample Houston home inspection reports for comparison http://homecert.com/HomeInspectionReports.htm
P.S. 1954 build with cast iron underground plumbing, I would have a hydrostatic test done on the lines.
