Buying a new lake house can sometimes be a shot in the dark. People can disguise concerns they may be having, and leave them for the unsuspecting buyer. Without a good inspector, you may not know you have a problem until it happens. I bought a lake house many years ago. The seller’s realtor ordered a Heating as well as Air Conditioning inspection business to come in and inspect the entire Heating as well as Air Conditioning system. He left his professional opinion of the Heating as well as Air Conditioning system on his letterhead and charged her nothing. I should have known that a self-explanatory letterhead with hand written concerns was a bit suspect. The N/C on the bottom sealed it for me, but I was hoping the realtor had better morals than to lie to me. I wasn’t in the lake house for more than a week when I had to turn on the a/c. It worked for a single day, and then it died. I called the Heating as well as Air Conditioning company that was on the paperwork I had. He came over to the lake house that same day. He shook his head and told me he had told the old owner that she needed a new Heating as well as Air Conditioning system. He couldn’t know I hadn’t told her I wanted the Heating as well as Air Conditioning system replaced or the price of a new Heating as well as Air Conditioning system taken off the price, before I bought the house. I showed him the paperwork I had been given. It was the letterhead of the Heating as well as Air Conditioning inspection business. He shrugged and said he had never heard of him. When he called the cellphone number on the letterhead, it went to a woman’s cellphone, and she said that it was her spouse, and he was a mechanic. He knew nothing about Heating as well as Air Conditioning.
