I am dragging leaves and brush to the woods behind the detached garage. I noticed what I thought was a white mold in the under brush. Turns out it was toilet paper coming from a 4" pipe.

I had to put in a new system just after I bought the house. The home inspector was only liable for the $300.00 I paid for the test. The house I bought was As Is.
In Vermont you could sue the electrician just because he walked by the neighborhood.

My proposals in home inspector aftermath jobs cover - not responsible for any defect missed by the home inspector in the wiring of the subject property and we are not performing any inspection service to find any further defect. We are performing only repairs to defects that are already identified. And then the customer signs that and I go about my business. Like a good Irishman.

Like a good biz man Mac

Look, i don't make the rules of liability or litigation for our trade, and my experiences are nothing to brag about on the receiving end of it all

What i have learned is ,those with the deeper 'insurance coverage' pockets are a target for those that are po'ed and have the $$$ to buy lawyers to chase it down

'guilt' has very little to do with it....

Yeah i'm old ,ugly, mistrusting & chicken .....i've come by it honestly.....
