Interior load bearing wall needs better footing…

12 months ago

Hello, I am going to speak to the county engineering inspector, just wanted to share and see whether this has been experienced before and capture your suggestions.

During build, my husband identifed a wall that looked to require better footer stabilization. (Sits on one inch, leaving 2 inch gap underneath.) On the bathroom side. He sent a message, received response that it would be addressed. The drywall was put up, we asked about the measure taken and were advised the county inspector passed it as it was.

We are concerned about future issues with settling, not sure if high risk, and disclosure obligation if we were to sell down the road.
