Asked by Mandaluv, Pittsburgh, PA • Wed Jun 27, 2012
The seller disclosure stated no knowledge of roof damage. However, the home inspector showed me where the roof is leaking into one of the bedrooms, and took pictures of the roof to show that it is in generally poor condition. The house was built in 1982 and they guessed that this is the original roof. I talked to my Realtor, and she said that we can request a credit for the cost of replacing the roof. I am willing to overlook the home's other defects (all relatively minor in comparison) if the seller will give me a credit for a new roof. I know that if I walk the seller will have to revise the disclosure regarding the condition of the roof. Do you think the seller will accede to my request?
