St. George Building Inpsection13136 KUEN PLACE Sherman Oaks, California United States of America
My husband and I recently bought our first home and hired St. George Inspection to inspect our property. Unfortunately our inspectors (Linda and John St. George) failed to protect us.
Since moving in to our new home, we have discovered many things to be wrong with our place. We’re fully aware that part of being a home owner comes with discoveries of unknown issues. We also realize that the inspection process can’t see everything wrong with a home; only what is visible to a trained eye.
St. George inspection did point out some important issues, but failed to look at our sewage pipes. Two weeks after moving into our home, we had to replace all of our sewage pipes, which was a very costly process. The pipes were completely deteriorated and held together with duct tape. This is clearly something a good inspector would have noticed when looking under the house.
St.George Inspection also told us that the majority of plumbing had been upgraded to copper, which we later learned was inaccurate. These are huge mistakes and could have possibly affected our decision to buy this property. My husband and I are first time home buys; we are not contractors nor plumbers, which is why we paid for an inspection. We believed that the inspection would protect and inform us of what we were buying. I hope nobody has to go through the stress and financial burden that my husband and I are currently enduring due to the negligence of St. George Inspection.
