Back again -- still trying to get that house I'm looking for here in Phoenix ... one we can afford. :-)
We are looking at a house rehabbed by a non-profit. The contractor (since long-gone, I am told) did a terrible job, replete with unfinished or badly installed plumbing, electrical, ductwork systems, and I'm just getting started. Another scary example is the otherwise good-looking complete stucco cladding being flashed wrongly or not at all.
Despite our inspector's devastating report, our realtor wants to give the non-profit a chance to "make things right." I'm willing to give it a chance but, before we have a meeting soon with the seller and their (new) contractor to hash things out, I could use a better idea of what is negotiable and what is flat-out required that they fix.
I went on the Phoenix codes site, but it's hard to get an overview there. I don't expect a full study course here, but would appreciate tips on where I might find something to use as a sort of checklist.
