Nice. I wonder if vendor #1493 even knows what "Winterization" means?

You can't point the finger at vendor 1493. Who the hell knows who has been in that house and done their own dewint...shoot the sticker clearly says it was done almost 4 months ago.
I'd be more pissed at the dillweed doing the routines on it than anything. Or for that matter the dillweed in the cubicle reviewing the photos that were submitted for the routine inspections.


I retract previously stated comments IF the remaining fixtures are indeed still winterized and intact. Otherwise, I stand behind my statement.

That tells me the house was dewinterized and either a realtor, investor, another contractor or prior homeowner pulled the meter. Seen it a 1000x

Yeah we did reo initial services andare doing routines on a 250k house. The bank or broker decides to remodel the inside, carpet paint and windows. We go there for a routine in December, meter disconnected but the guys working there apparently decided to get water turned on, but no heat so toilets were full, lines full, but they pulled meter back out when done. It was about 30 degrees outside. Luckily we caught it before anything froze and winterized.

In my situation, if pipes had frozen, 95% confident no one would be held responsible.

The winterizing contractor is held responsible. Welcome to the winterize liability game. Last time it happened to us we had to hire a lawyer to get the "official notorized" water dept records to prove that "someone" hooked up the meter-CALLED the water dept and had water turned on at the curb and dewinterized the home.

In our case we never found out who turned the water on at the curb... We think an investor did it. I spoke with a BIG investor who flat out stated they turn water on at EVERY home they may want to purchase and if it freezes so what! They buy it cheaper with damage or there will be new plumbing. He laughed since he said 95% of the replumbs the bank still deducts from purchase price since there are no permits pulled for plumbing repairs. I have learned a ton over the last 1.5 decades of P&P and now using it to MY favor....so beware
