I completed an inspection several weeks ago an found this, retaining walls bowed, steps angled down, my conclusion the whole of the front berm is sliding slowly and needs rebuilt. Then I found the driveway slopes into the garage and floods as evidenced by the waterline around the foundation wall inside, Garage/foundation wall shows signs of displacement and leakage,and it went on and on until I found the attic covered in a “mould like substance”. My clients decided to walk from the home purchase.
Two or three weeks later they were told by the re the home had sold. The seller and their re brought in another Inspector to do an inspection and his report found no issues with the foundation, retaining wall and most importantly advised that the attic was self correcting if more ventilation was added!
My clients knew better as I had educated them with information in the report and documentation from several sources in additional files and were as astounded as was I an Orillia Home Inspector would say that. There had to be at least 1500 sq foot surface area involved along with the insulation etc.
I guess that there are bad inspectors everywhere but clearly this one sold out any integrity they may have had for the price of an inspection and referral.
Ps My clients had me do another inspection this last week and this one was a keeper.
