The actual answer to this is how good a deal is it? Your Realtor will know what the value is... depending on your offer vs. value. Is it a great deal, or "ok" deal. (notice I don’t care what the list price was)

i doubt they will fix it.

I have killed a deal and re-submitted successfully against Fannie Mae. (Philip suggestion below)

post outcome if possible.

just thought i would let you know that they came back and are paying for the new well. and also to let you know we did get the house 40,000 below asking price. and 70,000 below value. yeah!! thanks for the answers.

You have to ask, and answer, the exact, same question that the SELLER will ask:

"Is the Selling price worth putting the money into the well?"

If the Seller says "NO!:, then they are stuck.
If you say "NO!", you can just walk away.

The well is kinda important to the House, the Sale, and the Property. Kinda!
If the Buyer was doing an FHA or VA loan, they probably would not get it approved. The Seller would still be stuck.

Its possible. You can ask. Have your attorney try. The worst they can say is no.

1. This question was posted and answered previously.
2. Your agent should have told you there's absolutely no way to know if they will pay until they give you a response.
