I have a situation that has been developing for the last three years. A fellow inspector and former N.A.C.H.I. member has been telling the real estate agents in the area a number of untrue and sometimes damaging stories about me and my business. You know, the usual, “He is being sued.”, " He is out of the business.", " He does not know what he is doing and does drive-by inspections." , and the ever popular " he is lying. He’s not insured. Never was and because of past litigation, never will be."
Today I found out that he is being even more wreckless and has made some statements that are clearly actionable. There are several witnesses who have come forward and urged me to do something about this guy.
It turns out that he is a member of O.A.H.I. and is in some way connected to the C.A.P.H.I. national programme for eastern Ontario.
So, my fellow inspectors, if faced with a similar situation in your neck of the woods, what would you do?
