It depends on the bank and the house. You can usually get an inspection and a mortgage contingency. I have never seen a contingency for the sale of another home. If the home is not mortgagable due to condition, you would have to pay cash.

Every bank is different, but in my experience I have found that banks will only fix what would be necessary to sell it to the next buyer. For example, there was a home where the water main was broken between the house and the street. That is not the responsibility of the water company because it is on private property. My buyer couldn't even complete inspections because the water couldn't be turned on to the house. The bank immediately fixed this because without making that repair they would end up with buyers who just backed out because they couldn't do inspections.
Unfortunately, the items that you mentioned are probably not going to be items that the bank would fix. However, it is ALWAYS worth your time to request the repairs you want because the worst thing that can happen is you get a "No" answer and can then decide whether to move forward with your purchase or back out. Check your contract and the bank addendum that you signed to make sure that these are indeed your options. My answer here is based on what I see with typical bank agreements to sell foreclosed homes.
Good luck!... more
