(Full question -- truncated above)

Under contract and sent the Seller Requests for Repair for several clear and significant structural issues with the home (one was even termed as "hazardous" by the inspector). The home has been on the market for a while so it is doubtful that this did not come up in previous contracts (my logical assumption). Can the Seller claim "they never read it" (my terms with copy of Home Inspection) so that they could continue claiming ignorance with the next set of buyers (should they not do a Home Inspection, they will be stuck with a lemon)?

If they CAN claim "they never read it and therefore know nothing to disclose" then how can they really make that claim? Someone HAD to tell them NOT to read it. Their Agent, perhaps? Wouldn't their agency then be liable / culpable for not disclosing the severe issues in the home to future buyers?

Thank you.

You've given a scenario but you have no question. Hopefully you have an agent who knows the exact terms, conditions and contingencies contained in your agreement. Defer to them for help about what to do at this point.

Good luck!

FHA all the way, depending on where your credit score sits I would recommend going through a mortgage company before a bank . Why? Because its their speciality. If you need a refferal just let me know. I have a Senior Loan Officer that does amazing work.
