Thank you all the member for making this forum so informative.

I recently bought a house in San Jose CA which is very expensive so basically put everything I had to get the property. The agent told me that the issues in the inspection reports are very minor but while reading online and going through videos, one of the issues does not seem minor. The house is ours so I cannot do anything about it except becoming aware of it. So basically the inspection report says the top of the rim joist is slightly outwards. I am attaching the picture. Could any of the experienced folks here please tell me their opinion on this? I have not moved in and the seller is still there so I cannot take any better pictures. I am more interested in knowing the seriousness and timeline and the cost to fix it.

This is a pros only site, so I doubt the Mods will allow it to continue

There is a sister site for diy questions though.

diychatroom.com

Before we get too far, questions from homeowners who aren't contractors should be posted in our sister site, diychatroom.com.

On to the advice. The wild card here is why are they tilted? Has the foundation walls moved in, walls moved out, what's driving this? Is this a seismic retrofit?

You're going to need a structural guy to figure it out. Unless it's something like an attempt at a seismic retrofit, any of the other issues will be expensive to fix.
