What I want to know is how is it we live in one of the smallest counties if not the smallest in the state and we have to pay one of the highest permit fees in the state! Then we get shoddy work passed by the inspectors! I think somebody should contact the States Attorney via a letter and ask for a full investigation of all the money and where it is going. When the State Attorney is contacted in writing he must act upon the request!(I bet the county does not want that to be known!)

We paid $350 for a home inspection for our house. After we moved in we had to spend around $700 in roof repairs because the metal roof was done improperly and we had some bad leaks. Of course, no one wants to take responsiblity for it so we are stuck with the problem. What kind of training is required of these inspectors and why aren't they responsible when they don't do their job?

Home Inspectors can only state what they SEE, if it was not leaking at the time, or no obvious missing shingles or flashing then how can they write it up. They have no idea what is going on inside walls or ceilings and thus the paper you sign says this. Home inspections are really a gimmick anyways. I already had taken note of most of the stuff, and he just wrote it down and spotted a few things I did not know/see. Your inspector should of explained it is only what they an SEE not what MIGHT be happening.
