I have been doing FHA assignments for years but it never ceases to amaze me how convoluted problems can get.

Case in point:

Inspection revealed no gas to central furnace. (Gas turned off) Marked appropriate section on VC sheet. Upon re-inspection a new problem.....heater makes howling noise and very little air flow at heat registers. (no wonder the gas was turned off?) :roll: Now, I will require an air conditioning professional to certify the heating system.

Now.....do I note this on CIR or give the client a revised VC sheet? Also, a sliding glass door that worked at the first inspection now does not open...no egress.....

I am thinking of revising the VC sheet........What do you all do in this
situation?

I would provide a revised VC, with the new conditions noted and described. There should be room. I would also note that it replaces the original VC. I would also note the new conditions on the completion report, i.e. gas now turned on but there are a few new problems. That way you would have a clear chain of reporting. The second, and hopefully final completion report will note the completion of the new issues.

my 2 cents.

Bruce:

I'd make a call to your local area HOC...

I have been told NOT to revise VC sheets on reinspection: document stands as was at original. Subsequent problems (or those caused by substandard repairs are to be indicated on "that other form #" --escaping me at present :oops: .

Do it whatever way doesn't get you shot by the folks you deal with :roll: .

I personally am VERY reluctant to change the original document unless I did a very bad boo boo... Changes in the house itself are not my mistake.
