Peace of Mind Home Inspections

 

The Missing AC

The house was listed as having air conditioning, but the home inspector reported 'no air conditioner'.

As the home inspector rounded the back of a Brentwood home… the remains of where an air conditioner unit once sat was evident… most likely due to copper theft during the 2008 mortgage meltdown.

Copper theft reached all-time highs in 2007-2008 when the price of recyclable copper reached $3 to $4 a pound. The thefts were happening all over Alameda and Contra Costa counties where thieves were targeting foreclosed houses.

In 2008, Congress passed The Copper Theft Prevention Act aimed at cutting down on copper theft. It required certain metal recyclers to keep records.
