Great question. The answer is - as it often turns out to be - "it depends."

I'd highly recommend talking to a real estate attorney whom you trust. There are specific transactional details which might give a Buyer the ability to terminate the Agreement based upon inspection findings, even if the Seller is willing to make repairs.

The Sellers Disclosure, for example, may need to be amended prior to closing to adjust for newly discovered facts. A Buyer is NOT required to accept the amended Disclosure, and may terminate the deal if the new Disclosure does not suit them.

For example, it may have been discovered subsequent to an inspection that the Seller did not get proper permits for some work which had been done to the house. The Seller would be required to amend the Disclosure prior to closing to reflect that fact. There is nothing which forces the Buyer to accept that amended Disclosure, and the Buyer might choose to terminate the deal as the result.

Good luck!

Your agent, and or attorney can better advise, therefore consider asking either party; much will depend on your agreement.
