Just got an inspection on 123 year old house.
Home inspector noted: Moderate settlement. Further evaluation and preventative maintenance recommended. Joist are not properly attached to the band joist. The current condition noted requires further action to correct the problem. The inspector recommends these repairs be performed.
This joist is on a concrete block foundation. That wall has bulged out slightly.
Edit: The house is on a hill, so this part of the basement wall is above ground. That wall has bulged outward from the basement.
Edit: A friend suggested we use joist hangers and deck tension ties, but I'm wondering if that's a good idea or not.
