You can tell her that this is why you want the details... for your insurance company. I don't understand why she wouldn't give you all of the information, so I think you are wise to be concerned.
Also, you may want to contact the attorney who is doing the closing and see if they can be helpful in persueding the seller. If you have not closed yet, maybe the attorney can help you let the seller know you will not close until you get the informaion on the damage.
Usually, contracts to rent prior to closing state all repairs must be requested and completed before the buyer moves in, and that once you are in, no further repairs will be done. Most purchase contracts have a "fire clause" that states the seller has the option to make repairs or void the contract, and the buyer also has the option to accept the repairs or void the contract if you are not satisfied. Check you contract.
