Asked by Jenny, Cleveland, OH • Fri May 2, 2008
We put in an offer to a property with an inspection contingency. The offer is accepted (signed by both parties), and we proceeded with home inspection. During the inspection we found the carpet is not in good shape (tired, thin pad, stains) and requested seller to replace or compensate. Seller doesn't want to do either one, and argue that carpet is not part of home inspection (not showed in inspector's report). We think even though carpet is not on inspector's list, it is still part of the house. And we didn't realize it will be a problem for us until the inspection period after we took a closer look. My question is, if we decide to walk away at this point, will we be able to get our deposit back? The listing agent said no because we would be walk away for a reason not from the inspection report. Please help!
