Home inspectors do not check things if the utilities are not on. This is our first home with a basement and were not aware of the unlabeled hose bib cutoff. He marked it as inspected in his report and noted he could not evaluate it because it was cutoff. It turns out that the rear hose bib doesn't work. If he had said something my husband and I would have turned it on. Also we have found out there were more problems with the windows then notated in the inspection. Of course, we trusted the inspection but have found there were more problems and now the expense is ours. There may be more issues to find as time goes on.

inspected 2 houses we were interested in buying. Because of his excellent skills, knowledge and professionalism, he saved us from a nightmare on the first house. He then happened to find us the 2nd house, inspected it and we bought it. We have been in the house now for about a month, and due to

provided a prompt accurate estimate of the services I desired. On the day of the inspection, Rich Hall arrived on time and provided a very comprehensive inspection of the interior and exterior of my home. He provided an electronic and hard copy of the inspection report. He fully explained the deficiencies and how they should be remedied. The radon inspection also went very well.

I have owned my property since April 2011. I am writing to you with immediate concerns regarding Mr.
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, Home Inspector (CHIT- home inspector license #30905). He is a Home Inspector who services MD, VA, DC & DE. His website address is www.potomachomeinspector.com and his email address is asktheinspector@verizon.net. His website lists his multiple credentials in VA as well as the other states.
Mr.
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
performed a standard home inspection on March 6, 2014 at my residence for a client named Mr.
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
. Mr.
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
is currently under contract to purchase my property with a closing scheduled on March 28. In the inspection report, which you will find attached, Mr.
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
advised the buyer that my property needs to have the pipes fully replaced as they are polybutylene. His report specifically states on page 3 that he estimated that the repair would cost $12,500. This is the only line item that he specifically attached an estimated dollar amount to. I can also provide a copy of the inspection report for immediate review.
My townhome was built in 1996. I bought the home on April 26, 2011. I was advised, in the home inspection done prior to my purchase, that the pipes were PVC and PEX. When my hot water heater was replaced in February 2013 I was also advised my pipes were in excellent condition and that the pipes in my basement downstairs were PEX.
Because of
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
’s report, the buyers asked me to lower the price of the home by $6,000 to compensate for the cost of replacing the pipes. My fiancé and I decided to do our due diligence. We have had two plumbers, one a certified master plumber and the other a journeyman come to my home on March 7& 8 2014 to confirm the types of pipes in the property and give an estimate on how much the replacement would be. Both have advised me that my pipes are indeed PEX and PVC. The master plumber Mr.
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
has provided me an invoice showing he was at my home on March 8th, the pipes he observed (PEX and PVC), and also included pictures of the pipes that he observed. After seeing the pipes and disagreeing with the home inspection report, Mr.
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
called Mr.
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
to discuss the discrepancy. On the phone, Mr.
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
admitted to Mr.
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
that the pipes are PEX; however PEX can be a similar form of polybutylene. After speaking with Mr.
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, Mr.
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
immediately contacted the buyer’s agent, Amanallah Khaliqi, to advise him of the conversation he had just had with the plumber I hired.
Another concern I have with the inspection is Mr.
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
’s opinion of the garbage disposal, found on page 11 of the home inspection report. Here, Mr.
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
feels that the garbage disposal is 5+ years old; however I have a receipt for the purchase of this garbage disposal from January 2014. It was installed shortly thereafter. I find it hard to believe that a disposal only used a few times a week for 4-6 weeks would show any wear and tear, let along the amount of one 5+ years old.
I am an insurance agent, licensed in all 50 states as well as the District of Columbia I have been employed for 8 years in the home insurance department and have reviewed hundreds of home inspection reports during my employment. This is the most fraudulent home inspection report I have seen in my life. Furthermore, I have never seen an inspection report where the inspector provides an estimated repair cost. It is also rare to see an inspection noting such a large concern lacking photographs showing exactly what needs to be repaired and/or replaced. A repair or replacement of this magnitude should not be taken lightly and should be well documented.
I also find it interesting that Mr.
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
would be the inspector for my property when
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
County, Virginia (where my home is located) is not listed on the website as part of his service area. (http://www.zillow.com/profile/asktheinspector/ - click “see all 414 areas”). I am now asking myself why a buyer’s agent would contact a home inspector based out of MD to come inspect my property. This is something that I will be investigating in this upcoming week to see if I can find out why the listing agent Amanallah Khaliqi would have hired someone out of Rockville, MD (approximately 66 miles away) to come to
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
VA to perform a home inspection out of his areas of operation.
I hope that in the future Mr.
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
does not negatively impact other real estate negotiations. If I had not asked for a master plumber to come into my home to verify the pipes, I would have lost $6,000 in the sale of my house! And as you can see, this is 100% because of Mr.
Fredericksburg Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
’s fraudulent inspection report.

Everything went fine, nothing major or outstanding about the inspection. He pointed out a lot of things in his report that I would not have noticed. His report was professional and easy to follow.

We hired

& Associates for our home inspection and could not have been more impressed. Buying a house can be a stressful process.

& Associates was very patient and took us through the entire house answering all of our questions. He was very friendly and not only showed things that were wrong, but also water shut-offs, where to change the filters, and gave us several home maintenance tips. After the inspection we received an electronic copy of the report that had tons of photos with everything he found and explained to us. We highly recommend

and Associates. Out of the 4 times of having a home inspection performed this was by far the best experience.

I had a serious fly infestation along with ant problems in my kitchen. They came out to do an estimate and I have never been more satisfied! He didn't try to sell me anything I don't need and gave me advice on how to do the work myself because it would be more cost efficient. My boyfriend and I were so happy and shocked with his honesty and professionalism that we discussed hiring them for lawn services just because we liked them so much. If we do decide to do this I will post a review on that as well. Very pleased!

was great. He explained many things regarding the house, that we were not aware. The house was vacant, so we would not have known any way of finding these things out. He went around the house to point out additional features and how things work. He pointed out items of interest, and so many things we were not even looking for. I found him on the ASHI (home inspection licensing/accreditation agency), so I knew to trust his skill. But all the additional information he provided was invaluable.
