I AM TALKING ABOUT INSIDE ATTIC PICTURES NOT OUTSIDE ELEVATION PICTURES
Well I believe it is time something is done about what is going on in Florida before someone gets killed.
With the current wind mitigation form they say it must have photos when the items are visible or accessible. This is being done in an attempt to prevent fraud. It does nothing to stop someone from faking it. Inspectors are risking their lives and the clients property so they get the credits they deserve.
This is not safe. Many times the items can be observed from within a few feet of the hatch. Photographing the stuff can be difficult or impossible even though the inspector can see and identify the features.
This practice is putting our lives at risk so our clients do not get screwed.
I believe the form must be changed before it is to late and someone dies.
If someone is found guilty of committing fraud their license should be in jeopardy.
It is great practice to photograph these things whenever it is possible and safe but should NOT BE A REQUIREMENT. Photos should be used by us to back up our findings when needed.
I am interested in any ideas on how we can stop this before a fellow inspector gets killed because some insurance person behind a desk wants to see a picture of a nail. It is absurd and something must be done before it is to late.
The people who come up with these bright ideas are not the ones putting their lives on the line and we must do something before it is to late.
