Asked by Andy, Roswell, GA • Wed Dec 19, 2007
Our offer on a home was accepted and we just completed the home inspection. We're reviewing the report, but are unsure of what fixes and costs are reasonable to expect the seller to pay for, and which we should let slide. In particular, there a couple of biggies that stand out to us. (1) foundation under main floor bath-- erorded under slab, likely needs new footing. Note that this is a bump-out room; the rest of the house is on block foundation which is fine (2) roof has less than 3 yrs life, and needs some minor immediate maintenance (flashing, nails). (3) hot tub deck is rotted and unsound, and the electrical isn't GFCI, (4) water heater is 14 yo disclosed as 10, (5) ac vibe pads are busted. There are other minor things, but these are the ones that struck us as they are likely to limit our use of the home and its amenities, or cost significant money in the near term. Our realtor is standoffish about what to ask for-- says it's up to us. Any suggestions/ How do we decide?
