Don’t Skimp When It Comes to Inspections

WATCH THE VIDEO: We do a lot of commercial building inspections and we do professional witness work as part of our practice. Sometimes, we work for the defendant; sometimes, the plaintiff.
I can tell you that, in 90% of the cases that we testify in court to, the landlord could’ve easily avoided litigation and going to a court based on just having reacted properly to their customer.
When a resident in a rental property or in a commercial building complains of an odor, mold concern or other environmental concern like chemicals (volatile organic chemicals), VOC’s, if the building owner responds quickly by hiring a professional such as Volunteer Inspections out of Knoxville, it will save them a lot of time and money in the long run.
There are a lot of messages that go with that when an professional, independent company like ours shows up. They know that the landlord is, first of all, taking them seriously as far as their concerns relative to health issues or issues within the building. And as a result of that perception on behalf of the tenant, they have a lot more faith in the landlord and they’re less likely to litigate.
So, don’t put off the tenant complaint. When you hear from your tenants with a concern, whether it’s an odor, exposure, high absenteeism, health concerns, call Volunteer Inspections at 865-385-0170 and get it checked out right away. That inspection can make all the difference in the world to the health of your company.
Thanks again. We’re looking forward to seeing you soon.
