Judge is wrong imo, the judge said he found NO EVIDENCE??
Home inspector out $13,000 for leaky foundation advice Canadian Underwriter
How ya figure? Buyers took possession October and got water in November and… lol the home inspector noted there was 1 or more foundation CRACKS, aka existing defects!!! In my expert waterproofing opinion, you can’t get much more evidence than that sheesh.
The inspector messed up imo when he apparently said, “MONITOR the crack (s)”… instead of telling/noting to have cracks properly waterproofed. as my badling ugly azz has stated before. The onus is on the SELLERS imo
Ya shouldn’t tell buyers to MONITOR foundation wall cracks, inform 'em to reduce offer and so that they’d have the cash to get cracks waterproofed, just my 2 cents.
I do see where inspectors who disagree with me are coming from… the home inspector DID note there were foundation cracks, existing defects. and there was a chance of water damage because of them. ****, why not skip that stuff and just say/note you recommend they get crack (s) correctly waterproofed, cover that azz!
Many sellers, flippers put drywall or paneling against foundation walls to intentionally hide/conceal existing defects, cracks in walls etc and they also will patch over and paint existing cracks to try n hide them.
