DEAR BARRY: We recently purchased a home and hired a home inspector to find all the defects. During the inspection, I noticed that the wallpaper in the master bedroom was discolored and peeling at the edges. When I asked the inspector about this, he dismissed it as insignificant, but I continued to feel uncomfortable about it. Last week, I peeked behind a peeled edge of the wallpaper and found green mold. If I'd known about this, I'd have asked the sellers to have it removed. Shouldn't this have been disclosed by our home inspector? --Jeri
