Our first dose of reality to the preservation world was about 10 years ago. Had to return to a property and remove a q tip from behind the toilet.

We had one with AMS a yr ago...got 40.00 plus a 40.00 trip charge to go remove a 12 oz. plastic Dr Pepper bottle the realtor took a photo of in the yard.

Why couldn't he just pick it up??

Had one yesterday,
***INSPECTION HAS REPORTED THE MANDOOR OF THE GARAGE IS OPEN. PLEASE
CLOSE THE DOOR AND SECURE THE PROPERTY. THANK YOU***

That is all it was. Man door was open about a foot. Why the inspector wouldn't just pull it shut is beyond me. There were 0 issues with the door.

Had one 6 weeks ago: "inspector reports property is unsecure, front door is open."

Property is 100 miles away in an area I have no vendor coverage in. Dispatched a local vendor who reported door was shut AND property is obviously occupied.

I don't know if that particular inspector gets 3 or 5 dollars per inspection, but either way he's overpaid.

Iíve already told you more than I know.

I have had several work orders that do not make any sense. I had one that said to return to property because inspector states "no lock box and incorrect key code on front door" the only problem with that is we do not secure front doors unless its a final secure. The guy didnt even walk to the back of the house to the "secondary" door.

Had another one where the work order said to return to property because the inspector stated that the securing notice had slid down and was about to fall off the window. That one was dang near 100 miles round trip for a trip charge.

I have also had the ones to go back at my cost to remove a q- tip or soda bottle or a new rolled up news paper inthe front yard. Fas inspectors are the worst although none of my properties failed inspection I was sent to correct the previous contractors work. Things like blind hardware, nails, missing light bulb, dust on the w/h, dust on the door sills, etc

I was taught that if it was attahed then you bid to remove it. Not so with fas, they want book shelves removed and the tracks. I asked if i could remove the appilances also because they were just plugged in. They didnt get a kick out of that.

Pure stupid

In his defense would you have walked around back for a $3 inspection?
