Precise Home Inspections Brad C False Report, Unprofessional, Livermore California
We have a large custom home in Livermore that we put up for sale last year and hired Brad to "pre-inspect" our home. This way when listing we would present his report to any potential buyers. The inspection was professional however there were a number of errors made. For instance, the day he arrived we were having the windows cleaned. The screens were down in each room being washed. He stated on his report that the house was missing screens. He also stated that some of the lights did not work in the garage (they're on a seperate switch that he didn't check).
However worst of all he claimed he smelled a gas leak under the house. We immediately called PG&E out. They took their sensors under the house, into everyroom, around the house, by every gas using appilance and put a special meter on the incoming lines to monitor gas flow. PG&E gave us a clean bill of health "no gas leak".
Last year we did not get an acceptable offer so relisted the house this year to try again.
We had an offer the next day and the buyer contracted Brad at Eagle Eye to perform a new inspection for the new buyers.
Brad came out and completed his inspection. However, when we got his new report we were surprised to see the same veribage from his report the previous year. Same thing about screens, lights, and the non-existant gas smell.
Mind you there was no window cleaning, all screens were on every window, all lights were working and no gas leak.
When confront Brad admitted he used the previous years report and hastily submitted an amendment. By then the damage had been done and we spent weeks and considerable drama with the new buyers to correct the misinformation.
All Brad does an ok job if focused but this should never have happened and we never recieved an apology.
Go with some one else if you get the chance.
This gross error almost cost the sale of the house.
