Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you tonight.

I do not see that you have any liability to repair this.You repaired it at time of sale as required.This has been many months the buyer has to deal with it.There was no warranty beyond closing here once the repairs were completed.

You would respond to any claim by showing them the prior repairs and that you completed them prior to occupation. There is no warranty over time here.The buyer needs to file the pond, its there's and this has been to long to try and hold you liable for it.

I think you respond here and stand firm.Legally again after this as been so long I don't see you have liability.If they were to say sue in small claims I think you have a good defense here that you repaired it and it worked when you sold it.

Oregon does not have any warranty here for a used house when the pond was repaired as required at closing.You may choose to respond and see if they go away here.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Please let meknow if you have more follow up.Thanks again.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
