gas line. Are we looking at another code violation? Also, what does "Selling As is" mean? This is not a foreclosure but there appears to be a number of items (many code related) that should be addressed by the seller prior to the closing. My idea of "As is" is anything that happens after the closing. Can someone please explain? Thank you.

Selling as-is means the owner is telling you they do not plan on spending any money on repairs. It means any problems has the owner does not want to fix or deal with. You still have every right to have an inspection and appraisal done.

If the grill is about to tip over that could be a safety violation. Big booms from exploding gas are a bad thing.

You can offer anything you wish on the house. Take into account any repairs needed and then take off more for the inconvenience of having to do those repairs.

As-is means you get the house with all of the problems it comes with. It could be a good deal, it could be a bad one. Do be sure to have someone look it over hard to get both a problems list and a repair cost.
