but this is why a buyer is asked to chose what type inspections they want to do when signing the agreement of sale, when I work with uyers I tell them they should do the toughest inspection as possible so they know all they are getting into. it cost a bit more but heck youre buying a home not a cheap used car. the money is well worth spending..
also time of signing the agreement of sale you should have signed a sellers property sellers disclosure..even if it was a short sale,,this should have told you what issues the home had that the seller knew it had..now therecould have been issues the seller did not know about. this is why you hire a professional inspector to work for you.
good luck and sorry if the answer did not go youre way,,,
It isn't illegal for a short-sale to be rented, and neither the bank, nor the seller is obligated to make any repairs. Short-sales aren't for the feint of heart, and the rule is "caveat emptor" (buyer beware), you are purchasing a home in "as-is" condition, so the best thing you can do is to conduct an inspection (yes, at your own cost) to determine if you want to go forward.
Personally, even if the law required the bank or the seller to provide an inspection, I would want to do my own anyway, as I wouldn't trust an inspection conducted at the behest of the seller.
Unfortunately, there is nothing for you to report. Sorry.
