#1. What were the terms of the purchase agreement. If you purchased the home "As-Is' the seller has options that prevent them from being subject to unreasonable obligations. What is unreasable is solely defined by the SELLER.
#2. Yep, I've had one 'inspector gone goofy' report nullified by a HVAC engineer who stated. "Everything is working as designed/expected."
#3. Precision Your inspector DID NOT SAY 'not blowing cold enough" but provided data that sounds like:
- Air differential is less than 8 degrees. ( Optimum is 12 degrees)
- Incoming air and conditioned air temperatures are too close.
What does the report actually say?
When you were there, the first and second time...did it feel as though the HVAC was not working properly? Take care when allowing another who is not part of the negotion to insert a poision pill.
Finally, how much do you want the house?
Do you have a second, comparable option?
Is the repacement of the HVAC a show stopper?
If it is for you, then let your professional negotiator you hired find the middle ground with the seller.
Be aware, there may be a back up buyer waiting for you to make a bad decision.
Best of success,
