Garage Door Opener: Defective safety reversing mechanism and retracting insensitivity creates an unsafe condition.

Gas Water Heater: The water heater should be installed 18″ above the garage/carport floor to avoid a missile bomb waiting to go off.

Smoke Detectors: Many homes have smoke detectors with missing or dead batteries creating a false sense of security.

Oven/Range: Can the combination oven/range in the home you are selling tip over because the anti-tip bracket was not installed?

Building Code Violations: Many homes have improvements built with no permits and the work may have been completed by unlicensed contractors or “weekend warriors”.
