N Michigan Avenue in Howell
We just bought this house but do not take occupancy until September 1st. We had an inspection done and moisture was found in certain areas of the basement. Not sopping wet, but the sensor detected moisture. I want to see what is causing this and what I can do to prevent this mositure in my basement. Can you give me some ideas? Do I need to wait until we officially take ownership before anything can be determined?
