The township has permits for new roof, but 4 rooms were added as well and
there do not seem to be permits for them. I do not want to buy trouble.

You need to check with the county or city recorders office and or building inspector. If the additions were permitted than the permits will be on file. If not you have to assume the rooms were added without permits. Your lenders appraiser will not use that square footage as part of property value. Also you have no assurance the work was done properly and to code. Buyer beware....
