with an inspection report done, could she/he (inspector) be sued if an undetected issue were to crop up?

Martina Ryan answered:
If we finish our basement for $10,000 and we live in Rocky Point, NY, in this market will we get a good return with baths/kitchen redone?
Be careful when renting Basement apartments as they are not legal in NY & the fines can be huge. Check the C of O before you start your renovation. Good luck.

Who certifies where the Fall Zone is? It is urgent to know this as it's all that is stopping a closing on this house.
The fall Zone can be Certified by a Licensed Land Surveyor, they will need to come out to the property & document the existing conditions.

Would you not be annoyed after having a home inspected and being told that it was built in 1955 and find out from the inspector and the Town that it?
Some of the finest home building was done at the turn of the century and some of the worst workmanship can be found in homes built in 2009. What does it matter.
