Consumer Alert! Attention all Southern California HOA managers, reserve study specialists, HOA attorneys, CAI and CACM
Update, 2/18/22, Board of Professional Engineers has Opened A Complaint Against Raffi Abkarian
For immediate release !
DeckExpert.com, after investigation and information provided by anonymous sources has formed the opinion that HOA/condominium balcony inspection reports signed off by a “deck inspection” firm operating in the So Cal area may be invalid and fraudulent. The company is performing balcony inspections for condo and apartment complexes in the Southern California area and through their waterproofing company, is offering to fix any problems at exorbitant rates.
A copy of a report that we reviewed has a signature on it by a Raffi Abkarian with a license number of 36207 listed next to the word “engineer” on the “qualifying title” line. Strange that an engineer seemingly can’t remember his own license number? Even stranger to me is that he didn’t state structural engineer just engineer… Or place his stamp on it. Of course obviously he cannot stamp it with a civil engineer stamp. Calls to two phone numbers listed for Mr Abkarian went to voicemail or was disconnected.
