-Could you explain your situation a little more?Is this the same situation I addressed yesterday or is this a first time question?
I have no way of tracking prior answers so if you are asking this as a follow up please let me know.
This is related to yesterday, but I am inquiring about going after the realtor for the repairs, because during the our repair of the sewer, the plumber saw a crack in the clay pipe, but I told him not to put it on the report, because at the time I was upset that the buyer kept trying to chisel the price lower lower with more repairs etc. Yes, I know it was wrong, but at the time I was upset and didn't care.
So if I do have to represent myself in court, the plumber may be called to testify and I would surely lose the case after he mentions the crack.
This is the fault of my realtor for not sending the receipts to the buyer like we asked. Had she done this, the addendum states that the buyer would have only two days to inspect and demand add'l repairs.
So I would like to know if the realtor could be liable for damages ( the price of the repair) for not following our instructions to send the receipts to the buyer.
