The joys of finding an inspector who actually inspects. First place I bought the inspection was a required but worthless formality. Only item out of a stack of issues that it caught was hair in a drain which I removed in about 10 seconds—would have been much more effective to, say, put the money towards concrete I needed to pour. The way the market's been going where I am you pretty much have to inspect a place yourself before deciding whether to make an offer anyways.yes, she did have it inspected
One place I rented had a flat run under the house for the kitchen sink's drainpipe. The owner had installed an outside port for cleaning it, which wasn't fundamentally a bad idea I think, but it was uninsulated. So eventually the pipe split and started dripping. Into the insulation of a heating duct, meaning the water ran into the furnace and killed the control electronics. We had a few days of no heat in winter whilst waiting for a replacement furnace which could fit through the floor hatch to the crawlspace to be trucked in. Pulling the old furnace and wet fiberglass up through the hatch was, um, fun.We've had to deal with a few through the years, including once on a day very much like today.
Today's weather is, er, more dramatic. The inversion's warmed 1.6 °C.
