Home Inspectors

Is there any recourse when you get a lousy home inspector but aren't aware of it until after the deed is done (as in the mortgage is signed)? I purchased my home 4 years ago and had it inspected before purchase but after the fact have found a number of problems (glaring) that weren't mentioned. He even failed to run a radon test ( I didn't even know they existed let alone are a required thing - I needed remediation when I did test it thanks to the american lung asso. They give out free kits to sample your basement air upon occasion. Maybe this could be a subject for a future show. Thanks

Most Home Inspectors do not perform radon tests. You may have to hire a specialist who does this. I seriously doubt you have any recourse concerning the home inspector after you have signed everything. Some problems may not have been noticeable at the time of inspection.
