That is crazy, but you sometimes have to be careful policing the police. Not to say that the inspectors shouldn’t have found these items. But 99 times out of a 100 you can go behind any inspector including Mike Holmes and find something.
Mike Holmes makes good TV, but he is not a Home Inspector.
I would ask whether Mr Holmes was informed, through his producer, of course, that the house was a grow house BEFORE he arrived to inspect it?
Kinda easy when you know the house’s condition BEFORE you start the inspection.
TV is NOT reality. Staged, pre-determined and all about ratings, even in Canada.
But, like Oprah and the soaps and MSNBC, the public just laps it up.
If I had a $100,000 fee, and producers doing my pre-inspection work, I woud find a whole lot of defects.
Have Mr. Holmes come down to Chicago, without his pre-production staff, and do an inspection.
Hope this helps;
