You walk into a house that had already been inspected. There’s glaring issues in the basement – a massive crack in the foundation plus some apparent moisture stains. You ask yourself, “How did the initial home inspector miss these easy-to-recognize issues?”
It’s a good question, one follow-up home inspectors don’t ask enough. They are too busy looking like the hero to their client while throwing a professional colleague under the bus.
Instead, follow-up home inspectors need to recognize they are inspecting an entirely different house. What questions should they ask themselves during the re-inspection? How should they proceed with detailing the defects?
I examine these issues in this week’s ClaimsAcademy video blog.
