Default Fraudulent Inspections

We recently purchased a home(owner finance w/ 5 yrs ballon). We bought it as is w/ part or half of the inspections completed and signed off on. The bank wouldn't loan on it due to it not being finished. The inspector has since lost his lisence for fraudulent inspections. I didn't know that at the time just couldn't find him on google search so we called another inspector to come finish the Hardy. He came and said it was all install incorrectly along with the window and we have yet to get the roof inspected. Extremely worried it will not pass. I do not feel that we should assume the financial responsibility. The Home owner has moved out of state and has been somewhat helpful but I feel he is a little at fault as well. We have has the electricity breakers blow due to aluminum wires knicked and wrapped in duct tape and laid in a ditch. This has been an extreme nightmare.

The above poster is not a Home Inspector, appraiser, or attorney.

He just likes to shoot off his large mouth.


Here is some helpful advice:


Contact your local building permit issuer and and ask them for the rest of the inspections.

It is their responsibility to staff that position.

I the project is now complete they should be able to issue a certificate of occupancy.

Good luck.

[QUOTE=nthornberry;1010676]Wow, pretty insulting considering I'm involved in more inspections and real estate transactions in a week then you will be in your career.

The guy has breakers popping, fire hazards, etc. He needs real help from my read of it, and urgently.

If you'd like to put together some details on your situation, and answer some questions offline, simply email me at Nathan@NathanThornberry.com. Search my name and the last guy's on Google if you want to know who's legit. I'll be happy to give you some advice, I do it professionally with 10's of thousands of clients of home inspectors I work with each and every month along with my staff at The Inspector Services Group.

Have a great day![/QUOTE]

Sorry Nathan but as a home inspector I must call them as I see them.

If you feel insulted I could care less. You are what you are.

It would be prudent to take Mr. Thornberry up on his generous offer and contact him directly.

Mr. Jimenez is a client of Mr. Thornberry and prevented contractually from saying anything negative about Mr. Thornberry or his services.

As you can see when confronted with the truth both of these gentlemen resort to name calling.

It's sad what a snake charmer can convince his snakes to do.

I don't think selling, or giving away, appliance recalls or 90 day warranties, Qualifies as being "involved" in a real estate transaction.

[QUOTE=nthornberry;1010691]A very appropriate discussion to have in the members only section frankly. Thank you[/QUOTE]

No, it needs to be public.

Are you hiding something?

[QUOTE=nthornberry;1010698]Nothing at all, it is simply a conversation that gets into inspectors business models and the propensity of some to speak negatively of others creates an environment where ethics violations are very easy to commit.

I don't want to promote that, and besides that it has nothing to do with this thread.[/QUOTE]

Ethics violations?

Are you afraid you will commit them if you post on public threads?

[QUOTE=nthornberry;1010702]Not at all, much more concerned about others and if you read what's already been said it has nearly become actionable and I don't want that. I'm not taking your bait either.

LAST POST IN THIS THREAD FROM ME PERIOD.[/QUOTE]

Nearly?

Nice try.

Bait?

What bait?

To the OP: If you are actually a real person, I suggest you contact your local code enforcement agency. If you get no satisfaction from that, an attorney should be your next phone call.

The wording of your question is odd. If you are sincere and not a setup by one of the "hardy boys", you can contact me via e mail or phone number below.

I just have to say that I am shocked and disappointed at the childish bantering in a forum set up for "our" clients. I came here thinking this would would good for my site.

Is this site not monitored?

Mr. Larson, grow up! This is NOT the place!

Mr. Armsworthy, did you buy snake oil too?

Nathan is not qualified to answer inspection questions.

Are you?
