I think you should talk to a plumber and find out exactly what this will mean for the new owners. Once you get a professional opinion you should be able to assess how much you want to help for the misunderstanding. If you want to be helpful you could even help the new owners find a good plumber. If their new to the area they probably don't know of one.
Robert Pasmanick recently stated that " My favorite remedy is helping Homeowners and Sellers solve their leaky basement issues start by looking up. Often gutters are clogged and overflowing water will create a wet basement issue. Next, make sure all gutters are properly connected to downspout extenders diverting water 10 feet away from the home. This solution has worked 100% of the time'.
Robert Pasmanick recommends to his Clients, " If you have a wet basement, call your RealtorÂ® ".

Best bet is to go ahead and contact a Pest control company and get them to do a "free" inspection. Then you will know the costs of any termite related issues with your home. Everything is negotiable in real estate these days. Good fortune comes to the prepared. Try Active Pest control.
Let me also put in a plug for having your home pre-inspected by a Home Inspection company. The inspection report will help you identify issues that need to be addressed before you put the home on the market. You can then display the report along with the "fixes" as a part of your marketing presentation for Buyers. Serious buyers do not want to deal with inspection and house maintenance problems in todays competitive real estate market,... more
