Hi Chris, here in Minnesota I had no seen it.
Only when is a City requirement, which might not have anything to do with FHA requirements.
As always, put it on writting and at front. Do not expect them to fix them.

Hello Chris,
If you stated in your offer the type of financing, most probably the answer will be 'Yes'.
Sellers know what chances they are taking by accepting an FHA loan, so will not be surprised by any lender required repairs.
Unfortunately for your clients, Freddie Mac & other sellers know they are taking a chance with that type of financing, so if they get offers by buyers paying cash or using conventional financing in addition to your clients, the seller will prefer to accept those other offers.
My advice would be to speak to the listing agent & ask them what the asset manager for that property is known to do when a request for repairs comes in, at that time he/she will also more than likely tell you if your offer would even have a chance.
Just warn your clients about the issues you noted.
Good luck & if you have any referrals to SoCal let me know (I give a generous referral fee) & I reciprocate if I know of buyers/sellers in IN.
