You got to love when people are anal about things. I had an inspection done this week on a house I am selling. The buyer had it done before buying the house. I had an inspection done before I bought the home and fixed everything that needed to be fixed. So to make it worth this guys time, he had to put some items in the report that I couldn’t help but laugh at.
“There is a 2nd grounding rod that has been abandoned (right side of the house) and represents a trip hazard. The top of the rod should be removed and the hole filled to grade.”
This type of thing could stress a dude out if they didn’t know how to handle things. I also have gutter pads around the house that present a “tripping hazard.”
There was also a complaint about the A/C not cooling the house in an hour. It was 95 degrees the day of the inspection and the A/C had not been cut on for a month. It only got down to 78 in an hour and needs to have further review…
I need to replace a piece of siding, replace a light bulb, replace boiler element in oven… and a few other small things.
The last inspection I had done for a house, came back looking right, the house had piping that was recalled, roof needed replacing, cracked fireplace, siding was rotting, the bonus room the owner added did not come close to passing inspection, A/C handling unit had rotted out, hot water holding tank was leaking, and a few other things. So to know that when I sell a house the biggest problem is a tripping hazard I feel good. Anyhow I am going to breathe and relax…
