New inspection article: Memo to Real Estate Professionals RE: Inspecting Crawlspaces with Water

InterNACHI’s message board has seen several threads about the hidden hazards of inspecting crawlspaces, especially those that are particularly damp or have standing water.  Not only can you not inspect what you can’t see, but you also may be in for a nasty surprise by forging ahead based on the pressure of a home sale.  We advise erring on the side of caution at all times and have put the real estate profession on notice in our Memo to Real Estate Professionals RE:  Inspecting Crawlspaces with Water.  Print it and hand it out the next time you find yourself put on the spot.
