The clients arrive and we start the inspection in the garage and of course the focus is on the door. The cable was all knotted up and told client the door obviously needed repair.

We notice the UNrealtor arrives and she goes into the house. We are still in the garage when the UNreltor proceeds to try to open the door with the automatic opener.
I calmly waved to the UNrealtor and pointed to the door. She asks me about the door.
I explained it is damaged.
She is the nervous type and is freaking out.
I told her to relax. Not a major concern.
She cant open the back door so I proceed to enter the front where you observe a strong odor of gas. The UNrealtor proceeds to the thermostat and fires up the furnace before I get into the house and the client is about to light a cigerette.
I calmly tell him to smoke outside and then proceed to locate the leak.
This is all in the first 15 minutes of my inspection.
For some reason they installed a new shut off for the stove upstairs and left the old one in the basement. (That is where the leak was)
So I proceed with the rest of my inspection.
There seemed to be more and more peoplearriving as I conducted my inspection.
I finished and then told the reltor that I usually email the report.
The UNrealotor give me her card which has no email.
I left her a message and she finally calls with her email and says it is www.... I say that is a web address WHAT IS YOUR EMAIL.
She calls cant figure how to open report.
She starts to give me the office email. www....I say that is a web address.
I thought I would share my expierience and would like to hear of your stories. My wife and family dont really understand so it is nice to type to the nachi board.
Have a nice day!!!
