Had an inspection, yesterday. Pretty good house with minor issues.
Check out this photo. The junction of the stairway (the picture was taken from the 1st floor) to the basement had an open space. It measured 1 1/2’ high and 1’ wide, at the widest. The client had 2 small children (3 and 1 1/2 years old) and this was a safety hazard.
It took me 15 minutes to explain why this was a problem and I was getting interupted by the agent all along the way. Finally, I stuck my head through the opening and called for thr 3 year old to come over to me. At this point, the mother got alarmed and finally saw the potential for her child’s harm.
All in all, it will be easy to fix, but I am amazed how hard it is, sometimes, for people to understand safety hazards.
Hope thjis helps;
