Zillow Advice: Home Buying - Many things missed on home inspection http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Many-things-missed-on-home-inspection/530288/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate It sounds like you have two ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Many-things-missed-on-home-inspection/530288/ It sounds like you have two issues, a lazy (and potentially incompetent) agent and a poor inspector.&nbsp; I'm sorry you're going through this.&nbsp; Too often people put very little thought into selecting their agents, we're all licensed, friendly and seem to be knowledgeable, but that isn't enough.&nbsp; 80% to 90% of the business is done by 20% to 10% of the licensed agents.&nbsp; The average licensee doesn't make a living at it.&nbsp; <br/>Finding a really good agent is really important.&nbsp; The best agents put your needs first.&nbsp; They have experience and know what to look for in a house and to watch out for.&nbsp; We refer our clients to the best inspectors because we'd rather lose a deal at inspection, then have issues like this after the fact when it's too late to do anything about it. <br/>You could let the agent know you're disappointed and notify their managing broker as well.&nbsp; This doesn't sound like an agent you would ever refer people to or use again, so don't.&nbsp; You may be years away from needing a great agent, but if you keep your eyes and ears open now, you may find one along the way.&nbsp; Fri, 28 Feb 2014 06:45:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Many-things-missed-on-home-inspection/530288/ 2014-02-28T06:45:00Z Its hard to say much on the ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Many-things-missed-on-home-inspection/530288/ Its hard to say much on the Realtor without knowing if he made proper disclosures, offered several home inspectors, etc. <br/><br/>Certainly if the home inspection company had nothing in their report pertaining to serious flaws, possible asbestos, etc. all it would take is one demanding phone call and your check for that home inspection would be in the mail to you (they far prefer this than risk you coming at them in court for much more). <br/><br/>I understand you don't (and should not) like the fact the Realtor did not help lead you. You can certainly write a letter to his broker on that end of it so its known by someone.<br/><br/>Depending on how the Realtor did in terms of disclosures, leading you to one inspector or possible errors in a more serious regard than simply being a lazy Realtor, etc. you may have a more serious violation... If this is the case a complaint can be filed with the state lic. board, a civil action can be filed, or maybe you would have a little more solid ground to make request of his Broker.&nbsp; Fri, 28 Feb 2014 02:52:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Many-things-missed-on-home-inspection/530288/ 2014-02-28T02:52:00Z
