Often when I speak to someone who wants to sell their Orange County home, they have an immediate need. The same is true for home buyers. When they are ready, no time is fast enough for finding a home!How
When a home inspection reveals problems or any type a buyer may request the Seller to repair, replace, or compensate them in some manner. The Seller can agree, negotiatie or simply refuse. At that point the buyer may decide to terminate their contract if this is a provision of the sales contract you've both signed. (It is in every contract I've ever seen, but I will admit it's been decades since I last saw a California contract)
Code issues are typically considered improvements, as building codes change every single year and there's not a home out there that isn't new that is current with all codes. Typically when I as a broker have a seller in your position my response on their behalf is as follows, "This is an improvement , the property met all applicable building codes at the time it was built." In some cases I check with my own inspectors or electricians, contractors etc to confirm when the code the home inspector is referring to came into existence before issuing this response.
Some contracts I've worked with allow the buyer to terminate for any reason or no reason whatsoever during what is typically referred to as a "diligence period" other contracts I've worked with are not so broad in the terms a buyer may terminate for and as long as the home met all applicable codes at the time it was constructed and the systems are "serving the prupose for which they were desgined" a buyer cannot simply terminate a contract. I would advise a conversation with your listing agent and/or an attorney regarding the terms of the contract you signed.
While you listed the house "as-is" did the contract you signed with the buyer have this clause in it? If so I would remind the buyer of this, if not you may point it out but it has no legally binding meaning and should have been written into your contract. If it is in the contract then hopefully there's enough earnest money on deposit that if the buyer does consider terminating the contract they have a to consider losing this money.
You are at a point where you need to decide what it's worth to you to hold this transaction together and try to negotiate with the buyer or take your chances, refuse to do anything, and see what happens, but be prepared to lose this deal and then find another buyer.

I wish you the best of luck and hope you're able to work things out and maintain the transaction.... more
