I've seen this happen a million times. The realtor is in collusion with the inspection company OR the realtor altered the inspection report.
TO ANYONE OUT THERE WHO IS BUYING A HOME:
NEVER allow a realtor to coordinate inspections.
NEVER allow a realtor to choose an inspection company, title company, lender, appraiser etc.
This site hits the nail on the head and should be required reading for anyone buying a house
Anyone who fails to see this direct conflict of interest needs to STOP thinking about buying houses until they wake the F*** up and include a little concept known as REALITY in their daily living.
You are young and you learned the hard way. NEVER forget this lesson as long as you live.
Would you let a used car salesman test drive a car you are thinking about buying and trust that he will forego the influence of his commission check when he gives you his opinion ??? Maybe in "Whoville" or "La-la land" but not here on the planet earth.
Any success starts with the paperwork you received prior to closing or after the closing regarding the inspections. If you don't have them then get them. Read the scope and limitations of the report. Determine if your state requires licensing of these inspectors and if they are licensed. Do the homework that should have been done before the closing.
In my state termite inspectors have to be licensed and are regulated by state law but home inspectors do not have to be licensed and are regulated by NO ONE.
You may not have a legal matter that will hold up in court (and then again you very well may have a good case) but there could be some state regulatory issues that could create some serious heartburn for the realtor and her cronies.
I do have many years as an "industry insider" under my belt with this kind of thing so if you want to email me the particulars I can try to shed some light on the situation as to where you should start and which cages to rattle first.
Good luck and sorry if my lecture stung a little.
