Subject is an older SFR with C&P paint that I conditioned with CB3 for potential H&S hazards related to LBP.

The CIR was ordered and I approved the work.

Now the client is calling becuause the D.E.U. allegedly says that all LBP issues must be re-inspected by a certified paint inspector unless I will go back into the report and remove reference to LBP--although I already completed the LBP-related C.I.R.

Two-to-four hours a day dealing with inanities & futility that drives even a newbee to drink!!!

Also, you can't go back and change the original appraisal report. It is what it is.

ZZ,

I believe the DEU is correct. The LBP abatement has to be cleared by a someone trained in LBP issues.

I just discussed the follow-up inspection with the Santa Ana HOC, which informed me that the appraiser should offer his or her services via CB3 to provide the follow-up inspection of LBP remediation, rather than to require an expert. The rep also noted that virtually nobody is going to do the job correctly so stop fighting windmills & get on with my life if a decent touch-up job was peformed...

Well...there you have it... a response from the windmill. Short of having either test results which indicate there is no LBP, or a certification from a specialist that complete abatement has been performed, there is always going to be a LBP issue. If the DEU wants the thing signed off by an expert, that's up to him/her. Your client would like you to commit career suicide and remove all references to lead based paint from the report.

Sure.. just sign off since a touch-up was done.
And when the lawsuit for $9 Jillion hits, for the kid who ate the paint, and now can't understand differential equations, just point them at the anonymous voice from the HOC.
