30 year old master bedroom addition was permitted but no CO until we made it condition of sale. Town issued CO to seller based on inspection report from electrician and plumber, but no open walls or structural inspection. During cosmetic renovations realizing there are some potential structural issues (wrong size floor joists, studs not properly secured). Also, home inspector noted inadequate water pressure in report but emphasized verbally to us that it's most likely a minor calibration issue with pressure tank and worst case the pressure tank needs to be replaced (couple hundred bucks and not worth negotiating). Now we are finding that we have to replace a valve within the well because the pump keeps losing pressure and constantly cycles on, which gave us a big fat electric bill just in a 12-day billing cycle. First quote to fix well problem was $5,000! Afraid to tear down sheet rock in master BR but so many signs have popped up pointing to faulty structure that we'll have to soon.
