I do not do inspections. They do not pay enough. I will advise my customers of what I suspect may be an issue if I see something and I recommend they get someone with the appropriate licensing and insurance to inspect whatever it is so they can get a qualified recommendation as to whether or not it is an actual issue that may or may not require further action on the part of the properly licensed and insured contractor.
During a recent rain storm, I observed water running down the walls in the kitchen and living room. The source of the water may or may not be from a broken water pipe or it may or may not be the result of a leaking roof which may or may not have had its water tight integrity compromised by the very large oak tree that appears to be lying across the house. I recommend a plumbing and/or roofing contractor licensed and insured in the state of Florida be contacted to reform an inspection to determine the actual source of the water inside the dwelling.
What they choose to do with this information is not my problem. I have informed them that there may or may not be an issue with the property that they may or may not choose to look in to further.
Then I mow the grass and leave.
