Asked by Jo Erne, Washington, PA • Thu Sep 26, 2013
I am interested in buying a condo in New York state (not NYC). I would be paying cash. The price is reasonable, and the place is perfect for me, except for one problem: there is mildew in the common area. This has been verified by an independent specialist. Abatement and preventive measures are apparently possible, although I don't have a price estimate yet. There is reason to believe that the condo board may not agree to pay for this. Is the board legally required to pay for this abatement? Can I pay and arrange for the abatement myself, and does that create liability problems for me? Is this a valid reason to ask the seller for a reduction in the price? Thank you so much for your help.
