Going to extremes for defect resolution

Successful claim against home inspector is all in the timing

DEAR BARRY: When we bought our house, the home inspector found nothing wrong with the heating system. One month after moving in, we turned on the furnace but got no heat on the second floor. We immediately complained to the inspector. He came back to the house and said that nothing was wrong.

A year has gone by, and the problem has not been solved, so we hired another home inspector. He found many defects that were overlooked by the first inspector, including a disconnected heat duct to the second floor. The first inspection was warranted for one year only. Now that the year has passed, what can we do? –Corey
