I'm sorry Charles, but I don't think we should advise not to buy the house when we don't know anything about these violations. Are their major or minor violations? we don't know.
She is stating that she's getting a good deal but the definition of a "good deal" changes person to person.
The fact of the matter is that we don't have enough information to advise Lakisha if she should or not buy the property.
I just had a client who recently bought a property with code violations but these violations which appeared to be major to the bank were easily taken care of. I have had other client investors bought other properties with violations so it all depends... Sometimes buyers don't have the funds to correct any code violations so asking for code violations to be corrected before close of escrow could not be possible.
Just a thought and I greatly respect your contributions.
