All the short sale and REO homes are "as-is" sale. The lenders will not repair anything unless they specifically mentioned in their approval, which I havent seen from any lender. It would be your responsibilty to do professional inspection and find out if there's any probelm or not. If you are not satisfied with the inspection or any major problem, let the seller's agent know and if they are not offering anything then it would be your choice to walk away from that sale or not. But you have to do all your inspection before the contigency period is over, which is mentioned in the purchase offer, check with your agent....Good luck!
