My wife and I recently went into escrow on a ~$0.9M property in a reputable South Bay neighborhood. Based on all available online disclosures, we carefully proceeded and negotiated to an accepted "as-is" offer $40K lower than list. Today we had the inspections and (GASP) for the 1st time we learned that the owner (male) of the house died of natural causes in the living room over the summer!! The seller's agent did not have his agent disclosures online on the day of our offer, nor did our agent have them at her office during negotiations. My wife and I only got the information after we asked on the day of our inspection. In addition, our independent inspector found two major issues on the home which has been estimated at over $10K, one which should have be CLEARLY evident to the Seller's agent. Now we are confused / concerned and feeling like we're being manipulated. HELP TRULIA TEAM MEMBERS!
Question: What options do we have to
