This big REIT bought this apartment community…they had it professionally inspected before purchasing. After they bought, they started getting complaints about leaks, ponding water, yadda yadda yadda…
I inspected the Community in Oxnard a little while ago. Every deck I inspected had some sort of problem on it, if not 2 or 3 or more problems of various sorts.
Take a look at the pics, see how many defects and problems you can spot!
Our estimate for cost of repairs to apx 150 decks-potentially 2-3 million dollars.
Moral of the story-call us to inspect any decks on any property you may be considering purchasing. Apx cost to inspect-less than $5,000.00.
If they knew what problems these decks had, they could have either canceled the sale or negoitated better terms and price.
