Default Re: We'll help you buy this home+pay your closing costs+more $. Buy Back Guarantee ho

Maybe a bit off topic here.
I see these several times a year. Often the cause is pretty evident. What I never understand is why no one addresses or attempts to repair the cause of the issue. Yes, you can brace the wall from the inside or the outside. You can knock holes in the block and fill the wall with concrete, but this doesn't solve the cause. I know as inspectors, that is not our position or job to determine or question the repairs.
Seems to me it is like putting a sump pump in the basement because there is water penetration in the walls. Doesn't stop the issue, just addresses the issue after the fact.
