Where readers ask and we (the community) try to answer:
Truth be told, this email was sent within the confines of one particular local real estate brokerage. We’ve already seen the answers provided by colleagues in the biz, but damnit if we aren’t curious to see what kind of snarky remarks our readers can come up with.
My clients are interested in an REO where there was a ‘drug lab’. This property is very clean ‘looking’ and one would never know there was such an operation there. The buyer will be responsible for clean up within 90 days of the close since this is an REO, as-is sale. There are no clear signs of where the lab was, and so far, our inquiries with the police department have been poorly addressed. We plan on investigating the cost during our inspection period. Can any of you give me an idea of how best to pursue and who to use as an inspector for such an opportunity?
Funny that this email came literally the same day SF Gate reported “Feds join S.F. house blast probe; signs point toward accidental cause”. Is it an accident if you forget to mix the crystal with the meth? Just sayin’….
