Considering how important it is to have a honest home inspector, I thought it would be important for the readers of this blog to know my interactions with Tim Bills, the owner of Sentry Home Inspections.
I recently bought a condo from Tim Bills in early January 2013. Tim Bill in December 2012 wrote on the seller's disclosure form that there was a "leak in the outer wall that was repaired by Asso. no additional leakage after the repair." Tim left a stack of e-mails in my condo that documented that there was a leak in 2009 and that the Association did repair it. However, Tim Bills did not mention that the wall leaked again in November 2012.
In January 2013, I was accidently forwarded open service request in which Tim Bills, owner of Sentry Home Inspections, wrote "The wall on the short alley that has had issues with water leakage in the past (and has been repaired several times) has again leaked after the recent storm. I began to smell an odor several days ago. I placed a moisture meter and an infrared camera on the wall to detect where the wall may be wet. I've in fact located an area at the base of the wall that is wet and is more than likely the source of the odor." The service request was dated November 4, 2012.
After I moved in, I also discovered that the issue has not been resolved and that the managment has not repaired the leak.
I wrongfully assumed that Tim Bills, a home inpector and owner of Sentry Home Inspections, would have been truthfully and disclosed the current state of the condition of the condo. I let you be the judge on whether you want someone like Tim Bills to inspect your home.
