What is the most you have asked for and received for a compliance inspection? I have a home in C5 condition where the repairs required were substantial. I called for an inspection with a licensed professional/home inspector for the structural issues. Home was built in 1905 and has not had any upgrades or routine maintenance since the 1950-1960's. There were water stains (warped walls) on every visible wall and ceiling. Homeowner stated roof was put on 10 years ago but it must have leaked for years with this amount of damage. This was just the first of many issues and I have spent at least 2 hours on addendum's, emails, phone calls etc since I turned in the original report. Now they want me to go back to inspect even though most of what I called for has not been done. Joe Schmo handyman issued an invoice stating the home was free from all defects and structurally sound and the lender seems inclined to accept it. I told the management company I am going to write a lengthy addendum covering my *** if they decide to accept this. Either way, it's a 2 hour round trip and much more work than checking off the box on the 1004D form. Just curious what others would charge.
