Thank you for your question. To Introduce myself I am a sydney based Solicitor and will do my best to provide you with relevant information to assist you.
The sale of the house was early April with a settlement of late may. All appliances were working at the time of signing the contract and when the vendor left the house on settlement day.
The purchaser did a final inspection but did not complete any type of final inspection check list to ensure for their state of mind that all appliances worked. There was no mention of these issues until at least one month down the track after settlement.
We know everything was in working order at the time of leaving the house
