Inspector Error Or Negligence
KNOWLEDGEABLE HOUSTON REAL ESTATE ATTORNEY
Many key players serve various roles when conducting a real estate transaction smoothly and successfully. The role of the real estate inspector is to help address current or potential property problems to help establish accurate property value and prevent costly future property repairs. If a real estate inspector fails to do his or her job effectively, the result could leave you facing expensive repairs of your future home.
Most real estate inspectors are dedicated professionals who are intent on doing the best job and conducting the most thorough inspection possible. Unfortunately, inspectors are human, and, they too can make mistakes. Whether an inspector error is the result an understandable oversight or has been made because of negligence, you will need the help of a skilled Houston real estate attorney.
EXAMPLES OF INSPECTOR NEGLIGENCE
Were you a victim of inspector error and negligence? You may have incurred serious damages and property repairs because of the inspector’s professional misconduct.
If you have experienced significant problems with any of the following aspects of your recently purchased property, you should consult the legal opinion of a Houston real estate lawyer:
- Heating and cooling systems
- Structural problems
- Gas lines
- Septic system
- Security system
- Structural integrity
- Termite damage
TERMITE INSPECTOR ERROR OR NEGLIGENCE
When a person is in the market to buy a home, he or she may be aware of general issues to be especially cautious of before signing any contracts. With the help of consumer reports and online research, potential homeowners can be made aware of obvious defects, such as structural damage, visible mold, leaks, or faulty roofing systems. Unfortunately, other, more hazardous dangers are not immediately visible to the human eye and can lurk in the baseboards and the internal structure of a home, such as termite damage. Termite damage is much harder to see – if not completely undetectable by a layman. Termite damage can pose a significant threat to the integrity of your home, causing you significant repair costs.
Signs that you may be experiencing termite damage include:
- Hollowed wood
- Structural damage
- Structural compromise
- Crumbling wood
Do not think your home is impervious to termite damage! If not treated correctly, even a new property can be devastated by a termite infestation. Because termites reside in the dark depths of most properties, homeowners are not likely to spot them unless a professional is hired.
Termites can be devastating to the fundamental structural supports of your home, and extermination costs are not cheap. This type of problem is exactly why the state of Texas recommends that all home buyers consider investing in a termite inspection for a property in which they are interested. If the termite inspector fails to adequately do his or her job, however, you may be left with the resulting damages – and the bill.
If you have been forced to deal with the financial repercussions of someone else’s negligence, you can potentially take legal action with the help of a Houston real estate lawyer! It is the professional responsibility of termite inspectors to investigate and determine any existing or potential termite problems that may cause or have caused damage to the home you want to buy. I can help right the wrongs that have been done to you!
