I need some advice please. I just inspected a property (FHA) with access to the attic from the exterior only. There was no interior access. After attempting to gain access I found that the attic access panel/door 8 feet up on the rear of the home had been screwed closed and all sides were chalked. There was no way to remove the attic access door without possibly ruining the exterior siding. I did shoot a photo of the access door to prove my case. Can I comment in the report that I was unable to gain access and the reason why, or do I have to call for an inspection? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
