Yes, the inspections are done and the mortgage has been approved. There were some issues with the inspection, mainly centered on the condition of the in ground swimming pool. My husband was in another state from the home in question, selling our other home. Now he's here and he saw the home yesterday and personally got a look at the pool and now he wants us to cancel our buying the home.
there were no provisions in the contract for what needs to be done to the pool. When the inspection report came back and said the heater was not working and couldn't be repaired, I made a request that the seller give us a $2000 concession, which they refused. The inspection said the marcite finish was old and needed to be replaced but I didn't make a request for that. Basically, we are now looking at the repairs that need to be made to the pool and also factoring in the fact that there needs to be a lot of updates made to the home and want to back out.
The inspection was performed more than 10 days ago.
$2500 and we are willing to forfeit that.
I don't understand your question. What do you mean by what form was used for your purchase? The sales contract says at the top "AS IS" Residential Contract for Sale and Purchase.
what's the "OR may sue to enforce specific performance" mean?
I'm not worried about my realtor, but, can the sellers realtor go after me?
Can I get a copy of this conversation?
you've been a great help and I will give you a great review. Thank you so much.
