I just learned that inspectors "assume". My house is very old, almost 60 years.. The walls are mostly cement, and the basement has never been insulated, and therefore, gathers moisture quite easily.
Typically, I run a DE-humidifier but it died a bit ago, and I haven't replaced it. On top of that, we did have a leak from an upstairs bathroom pipe for sometime, and it created a bit of harmless mold due to moisture.
The mold was cleaned thoroughly.
However, the inspector just assumed that there MUST be severe foundation issues. Buyer backed out
I am fuming. There never has been any foundation issues. NO cracks, no wobbly walls, no water seeping in.
He cost me a buyer, and now I have to go get what I already know, and pay for a professional to come in and put it in writing. I should be able to sue for cost of sale of house!!
