Inspectors

Can anyone let me know how is it possible to find out who an inspector is through five brothers? I work for them and I do preservation work, for some reason I am not allowed to talk to the inspector...Reason I ask is I installed a sump pump a bit ago at a home, week later I am sent back at my own charge, because inspector cant operate pump..So I go there, lift the float and its fine. (maybe the lack of water would of told him it worked.) Cant understand why he could not lift the float to test it. Now I am sent out again tommorrow to see why he cant open a door lock I installed a few monthes ago??

This is one of my BIGGEST frustrations: "hey, can you go to Property, "they" are saying the lockbox doesn't work". Get out there and it works fine. With today's technology, you would think that the AM requesting would ask for a photo from the person having the issue, but NO-it's easier for the AM to call me up and have me address the issue. I charge a trip charge or annoyance fee each time I have to go out and fix a non-issue.

Honestly, the only time i ever met inspectors was if i ran into them at a job.


As far as the sump pump, my guess is he looked and maybe seen water in the sump pit.And figured it wasnt his problem. Some inspectors are like the processors , the cant see beyond their nose.


I had an inspector who demanded i return to a job and re-clean the toilet. The toilet was stained from the water.It would not clean.Then he said there was broken glass still in the yard.

He went back to that job every other day for 3 weeks.And filed the same report, with the same pictures.

Enough was enough, i told my state rep they need to get a call into someone and get him under control.I had documented photos of the toilet,and before,doing and after of the glass on my truck.

I went back 3 times.and yes i did trip charge them,at my prices not their crap price.

Ha, so i am not alone...funny about the pump well, it was bone dry! I cant wait to turn the key in the lock and have it open, so i can write another note to 5 bros that this guys a wanker. Then invoice a 60.00 trip charge...or maybe change all the locks too and leave a note on the door stating how to operate a key and lock

Five Brothers does not want contractors mingling for the obvious reasons. And suprise, not all inspectors are licensed contractors working on the side. Many are housewives, retired grandpas, school teachers moonlighting who don't have a clue about basic home mechanics.

I had to rush out to a property because a broker could not gain access when I just changed the locks a few days prior.

I met the agent there and asked her to show me. So she did and her key would not go in so I asked for the key and turned it right side up and inserted it into the keyway and unlocked the door. The I turned around and walked away
