Inspector Problems (long sorry)
I am a newbie poster, but have lurkered for many months. We had an inspection done on our house before we bought it 14 years ago. There were moisture problems in the crawl space found back then and everything was repaired to the inspectors specifications. He then re-inspected it and gave the OK to close on the house.
14 years later this same inspector did another inspection for our buyer that wants to purchase this house. Now he is saying that the problems were never repaired in this inspection report.
Our realtor pulled all the documents from 1996 with all the repair records showing that everything was done to his specifications. He now states that we have a heavy mildew problem in the crawl space. I had mold/mildew remediation experts out there today and they just laughed. According to them, there is a slight mildew problem directly beneath where the dishwasher sits. Four years ago, we had to replace our dishwasher because of a leak. The experts say that is the only problem they found anywhere in the crawl space.
The buyer wants to back out of the purchase because of the inspectors current report about the crawl space. Our realtor is trying to work with their realtor to solve this. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. We are first time home sellers and are extremely upset, to say the least.
