I am selling a house. The home inspector that the buyer hired left a little to be desired judging by all of the mistakes in his report. He included a line item that had to be rescinded after he could not provide proof of any damage to the vinyl siding, not to mention the multitudes of grammatical errors in his report. The one thing that really got me was that he said the exterior outlets and door bell were not working. Usually this is a GFI reset switch. We had this problem before and I assumed my boyfriend reset it because the exterior outlets were working 3 weeks before the inspection. The inspector also said some wiring seemed to be disconnected in the crawl space and that could be related to the power problem. So we hired a licensed electrician to come out to the house and take a look around. After over an hour of searching the house and crawl space, the electrician found that the exterior outlets and door bell were tied to a GFI switch in the front bedroom. He said this configuration was very rare, but he had seen it before. My question to you is: Do I have a legal claim against the home inspector to have him pay the $220 bill for the electrician's diagnostic fee? I am assuming I can't hold him liable, but it really burns me up and if there is anything I can do to rectify this situation I would love to know. Thank you in advance for any advice!!!
