Had agent call me last week about inspecting a foreclosure; I advised them to make sure power and water were on prior to my arrival on Monday (2/9).
Upon arrival I found that the valve to the refrigerator ice maker box was leaking…matter of fact it had been leaking for at least 72 hours. Had the agent checked the fixtures prior to leaving the premises all this could have been avoided. Standing water in the kitchen with carpet and wood floors saturated throughout the house. Needless to say I shut off the water and notified both agents. Selling agent advised they would send a crew out to take care of same and put dehumidifiers and fans inside same. I advised I would be back in 5 days which would give the house ample time to dry out.
Went back this morning only to find that nothing had been done other than the agent turning on a ceiling fan… now fungi is forming on the baseboard and drywall as well as the wood floors are buckling.
How stupid can they be…what could have been taken care of for less than $300.00 will not only cost them the sale of the house but now over $5000.00 in flooring and general repairs. :shock:
