We’re Investigating- Has Your Association Received A “Re-Issued Balcony Inspection Report” From Deck Inspectors Inc.?

I recently received information from an anonymous source who told me that their association has received a reissued report under SB 326 for balcony inspections at his HOA. We understand that in correspondence from the association to it’s members that it says something to the effect that the report has been reissued with the signature of the architect who performed the inspections as the initial report was inadvertently signed by a different engineer.

What kind of competent engineer inadvertently signs a report that he shouldn’t have? Answer, none.

If you are like me you will find this very suspicious. I queried several engineers and other professionals who have to sign off on documents… And I asked is it possible for you to sign a report that you weren’t meant to sign? Answer was a resounding no because every one of them told me that before they sign anything that they haven’t written but have to sign off on that they read it thoroughly and ensure that it is a report that they can sign.

Board for Professional Engineers Opens Complaint Against Civil Engineer Raffi Akbarian For Signing a SB 326 Balcony Inspection Report

In order to sign a SB326 balcony inspection report one must be a licensed structural engineer or a licensed architect. These is the only two disciplines allowed to sign off on balconies under SB 326.

I already reported earlier that David Mazor of Deck Inspectors Inc is the owner of the company for whom Mr Abkarian signed a report. Mazor has a history of lying under oath, using friends to cover his ass and other generally unpleasant activities bordering on fraud. It is our hope here at WICR leaks that this investigation ensnares David and results in discipline against his licenses through CSLB.

A copy of the letter I received today. I will be sending the information about David and his licenses with CSLB.

If you have had an SB326 inspection by deck inspectors WICR please check who has signed the report if it is Mr Abkarian you should immediately file a complaint with the Board for Professional Engineers as well. You should also report this fraud to your local district attorney for investigation.

They ain’t gonna like being called grifters, but hey, we’re entitled to our opinions under the First Amendment.

So you’ll want to go check out our newest page on WICR’s List of Grift as we gleefully call it….

Meantime, here’s some juicy goodness about Lindborg & Mazor LLP where opposing counsel filed for monetary sanctions against them and had to write a letter to Irina Mazor regarding slanderous statements she made. For clients of this firm or potential clients, one really has to ask themselves of this is the type of firm you want representing you?
