Kg: A contract is a contract. What it says you can or must do, you can do. What it says others can do or must do for you, that's what you can get. Most New Jersey contracts allow the right of inspection and the right of the seller to remediate defects, as-is or not. After all, a house is a large and somewhat mysterious place, even to professional inspectors. Just what is behind those walls, anyway? A small repair or a small credit MAY keep a deal together.
Bottom line then, with ANY contract. Know what its says and what it means. If you are not sure, if there are conflicting clauses, if you want something "a little bit different,â€ consult legal counsel. I believe there are a bunch of people anxious to help you out, for a fee of course.
Now you also have very kind advice from people in Illinois and North Carolina. They are foolish enough to waste their time. Don't let them waste yours. There are plenty of experienced agents in New Jersey who can steer you in the right direction. Laura and Jeanne have proven themselves in many responses. They are very good on this one as well. I can't speak for or against the others.
