Okay, so a week or so ago I complained that we were about to have a house inspection. That's all well and good but SIL, who HATES me and who would enjoy nothing more than seeing me fail, was going to be doing the inspection.
I sucked it up, cleaned the house to perfection so she had nothing she could pick on... and waited. Today was the inspection.
I was a bit "wtf?" when she turned up in just random clothes. Not work stuff. Then I remembered - for as long as I've known her, she has Tuesdays off. Yet she was supposed to be working by doing the inspection, right?
Then she wandered around, glancing around (I think she was angry that she found nothing to pick on), and yet didn't have the camera it was stated in the letter that she'd be using (fair enough really), but she also didn't have any sort of paperwork on her. Not even a pen and paper. Usually when I've had an inspection (other rentals) they've had a checklist.
She also informed me that the next inspection would be done by the property manager. I assumed that this was actually her job, but now I'm thinking perhaps she just used the work's files so she could gain access to our house in order to have a snoop around (and pass judgement). Why wouldn't the property manager have done this one? Why did she record nothing? Why did she do it on a day off? Etc.
I don't think anything bad will come of it, so I'm not stressing, I'm just thinking she may have done this for no other reason than to be nosey. Not an "official" visit at all.
She usually spends her free time with MIL, so no doubt she was hoping to see what a filthy house we have so she can go report back to MIL and they can b*tch about how horrible I am or whatever... so I'm glad she had nothing to complain about (except 1 cobweb in the corner... which I didn't notice previously because I don't wear my glasses in my house and therefore just wasn't able to see it).
Do you think it sounds like maybe she wasn't actually conducting an inspection? Or is this how some real estates do things?
