  1. Legal issue w/ the sale of my home

    well, if you really feel that they caused the damage, you could go ahead and perform the repair before closing and inspect the removed pipe. if it's a clean hole and looks recent, maybe you can somehow tie it to them. but, a thousand times more likely, they'd pull out a section of pipe that looks like the section they pulled out of my basement a couple weeks ago, with a series of holes caused by age and rust. i understand your frustration, muck, and i am sure i would feel the same way, having something you didn't know was a problem exposed and costing you a pretty penny. it sucks. but looking at it dispassionately, i think you're blurring the line between them causing your headache by discovering a problem on your property, and them causing the problem on your property. it's pretty clear to me that what they did is the former. i don't really think you have any options other than just sucking it up and paying for the repair, or at least a bulk of it.
  2. Legal issue w/ the sale of my home

    probably, but from a legal perspective, what are the damages? if the problem is an old, corroded pipe, there is simply no way they are legally liable for fixing it. well, their camera got stuck at the same location, so obviously there's pretty strong evidence there was some blockage there before the rooter guy went in. in any case, i'm pretty certain that the only way a snake could collapse a pipe is if the structure of the pipe was badly compromised (and in need of replacement) in the first place. like maybe it could cause a ticking time bomb to go off, so to speak. i seriously doubt there is any way it can blow a hole in a perfectly good pipe, and if you want me to believe otherwise i'll need a link.
  3. Legal issue w/ the sale of my home

    if this is about who has to pay the $300 for the plumber to come snake out the line, then i agree, that is not on you, and if i were you i would probably refuse to pay that -- just as they have to pay their own inspector. but that doesn't make them responsible for the cost of repairing the damaged old sewer line on your property, just because they found it.
  4. Legal issue w/ the sale of my home

    again, he would have to prove that the agent CAUSED the damage to his line. as best i can tell, that's a losing proposition.
  5. Legal issue w/ the sale of my home

    are there any documented cases of a roto-rooter CAUSING a mainline to corrode and be blocked with dirt and/or roots (probably what we're dealing with here)? if so, maybe you have a point. but i doubt there is any such possibility. so your comparisons to burning your drapes, and/or tinkering with a car engine and screwing it up would not seem to be valid.
  6. Legal issue w/ the sale of my home

    well, muck, i don't think their inspector CAUSED your problem. the drain may have been working OK for you, but that doesn't mean there isn't a legitimate problem in the line that legitimately affects the saleability of your house. i can't blame them for wanting to check it out, either, kudos to them for hiring a thorough inspector. he didn't cause the problem, he revealed it, which is exactly what they are paying him to do. he tried to camera the line, got stuck, tried to clean it out, and found the problem. it is a bit odd that they hired a plumber to snake it out without your knowledge or consent. but let's say they call you and say our guy can't camera the line, we need to try and snake it out so we can see what the problem is....what, are you gonna say no? and on what basis? i also don't see how you could possibly sue them, unless you can prove that they caused the damage that needs to be repaired, which of course they didn't. i'd say your best bet is knocking a few grand off the sale price. they can either have it repaired before they move in, or wait a while until it really starts causing them problems.
  7. "Who Killed the Electric Car?"

    no, based on what DK has represented here, and what i have read here and here. pretty sure i'm not very far off.

  16. "Who Killed the Electric Car?"

    the whole f'ing premise of the film implies a conspiracy. who killed the electric car? like it's some sort of murder mystery. and obviously, according to the movie, the answer is not, "GM killed it because it was a product with virtually no demand, impossible for them to produce at anything close to a profit"...the film's answer is more along the lines, "GM killed it because they're in bed with big oil, and love selling spark plugs, and because ultimately they don't want the technology to succeed". so they point to a fact like refusing to sell the vehicles to a handful of lessees as some sinister proof of "killing". the filmmaker is a hugh EV advocate, so clearly the simple, obvious answer -- that GM ended it's EV program in the late 90s because the technology just wasn't capable reaching any significant customer demand -- will not do. so let's turn it into a corporate murder mystery with GM and big oil as the dastardly villains.

  18. fat tax

    it's not really about "nutting up and living", robn, it's about who bears the costs associated with peoples' own dangerous choices. someone taking the other side could easily say "nut up, and take financial responsibility for your OWN actions!" the bottom line is, if we want to live in a world where everyone is bound by the power of the law to take care of everyone else, then everyone else has a stake in the choices we all make with regard to our own well-being.

  22. fat tax

    personally, i hate the idea of the government trying to coerce you into official good behavior. but it's hard to deny that they are a very logical way of appropriating costs in an environment of socialized or semi-socialized heath care.
