I would get a waterproofing company to come in and look at the house, and see what damage has been done and what can be done to further prevent damage.

It has something to do with the fact that we have very little commercialization in Bridgeport. It's also a townhouse that's almost 2500 sq ft with 2 fireplaces 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and 2 partial bathrooms and is on the Fairfield/Bpt line.... more
The listing agent's broker has a legal contract with your parents, the listing agreement. You and your parents cannot just circumvent the the contract with that agent and agent's broker because you have now decided you want to purchase your parents home.
Will you need to sell your home in order to buy your parents home? What if it fails to sell before your parents need to close on their new home? Do they need funds from the sale of their current home in order to buy the new one? The multiple transactions involved may require more skills and experience than you realize at this point in time.
Are you an only child or are their other siblings that may want a say if you purchase the parents home?
You may find that things will go smoother and there will be less drama by having an agent as a buffer, should you actually purchase your parents home.
I would definitely suggest having a meeting with your parents and their agent to discuss the situation and see if something can be worked out to everyone's satisfaction.... more
