Did a followup call today to realtor, and first words out of her mouth were, Oh, didn’t he get ahold of you? “No”. Oh, well the day they moved in the drains all backed up and the basement filled full of water. He had to have Rotorooter out the lines were full of roots. He was talking about suing that inspector, because he said you should have found that.
I had flushed all the toilets, run water down all the showers, sinks dishwasher ran thru a cycle. Nothing seemed unusually slow.
But they come in and use the toilets and right off it's plugged. And he's talking about suing me to recover his $120 drain service fee.
My report clearly states that Underground pipes are not a part of the inspection. And it clearly states it's a visual inspection. But this jerk was going to sue.
I think the realtor has calmed him down for now. But the minute something was wrong, he was going after the inspector. It wasn't the realtors fault, or the sellers fault. It was that d*m inspector.
