I live in a small town in texas.Our local city goverment has, for over 4 years allowed a non certified inspector to do inspections.They charged for permits and inspections.It was not brought to light until he complained to the state about unlicensed plumbers doing work.While the state was here they ask to see his inspection certifacate, he did not have one. They ordered him and another person to stop doing inspections.
Dureing the 4 years I have had several permit and inspections on my rental properties.I guess the question is , what happens when my insurance company find out? I have had a problem with the city sewer line clogging up,and sewage comeing up threw the drains. the city will water jet there line and get it to flow.I brought in a plumber from out of town, he did a camera into city line and found there line was faulty.I have spent several thousands of dollar haveing my line inspected and roto rooted, only to find out it the cities problem.I get a song and dance routine from the city,we will fix it soon, 4 years later it still has not been fixed.
It has basically flooded the house, it rusted out older cast iron pipes, and flooded under the house, and now i have noticed mold growing under the floor. I cant rent the house, and have not for four years.
