Photo 1 at left shows a hot water heater without siesmic strapping, a potential hazard, but it's in an confined space, most will assume it doesn't need strapping to hold it in place during an earthquake.

Pressure relief valve drain line is missing or ends prematurely. This is a SAFETY HAZARD. Our inpectors would recommend this drain line be extended to a safe location

Photo 2 at right (top) shows what appears to be a normal overhead light fixture.
What do you think? Notice anything else?

... did you see the dark oblong stain running down the middle of the light fixture ... hmmm, it's a water stain. The renters had tried several times to get the shower repaired upstairs, but the landlord didn't responded, so the renter's quit using it several months ago.

Photo 3 at right (middle) sometimes it helps to turn the lights off to find or see the problem.

Photo 4 at right (bottom) with a thermal imager you can see where the water has leaked from the upstairs bathroom shower, repairs are needed for sure.
