Customer Question
Hi there. We moved...

Hi there. We moved into a house 4 months ago and the retic was turned off. No testing done to see if it was in working order. I have turned it on and for the first time today it kicked in. A sprinkler head blew out of the ground and flooded the area (all gone now into the sand no problem there) but the real estate is saying that it is my responsibility to fix it.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

WA

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I sent an email to the real estate agent today and she says its up to me to pay for a retic person to come and fix it at my cost. First time ever to be turned on by me.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No just this thanks

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
