People die all the time ... maybe you should not buy the house because someone had sex in the bedroom
before you guys move in ... what a laugh ...
Good or bad......your contract is a road map that will lead the way for you. Our recommendation is to consult an attorney to get the best insight.
Surprises like this are not good......

The disclosure of any additional item including death on the property gives the buyer a 3 day right to approve or disapprove of the item disclosured. The seller should amend their disclosure document and then you have 3 days from that point to make a decision to move forward or cancel. In regards to the inspection issues requiring repair, assuming you have an inspection contingency in your contract; you have the right to cancel, approve, or ask the seller to repair or pay you money in lieu of repair. With the as is offer you can not as a matter of law or contract require the seller to make the repair but neither can the seller force you to buy the house. It is simply a matter of negotiation and you are within your rights to walk away if you are not satisfied.
