If it is the same type of engineer and they are looking at the same issue, then no, that problem has been addressed, maybeâ€¦ Most people do not buy or sell homes very often, donâ€™t get much practice as a result of gaps between transactions, so they get â€œsquirrelyâ€ for lack of a better word. Your question does not give specifics about the nature or seriousness of the original issue. My guess is the buyer negotiated with you on price of the home instead of actually addressing the issue and getting it fixed. After that, they discovered lowering the price doesnâ€™t give them the money to fix the problem. I suggest this as a possibility because I have witnessed it a hundred times and those incidents started out like your question. If it were me selling the home I would ask for more information before allowing access to it. You deserve as much information as they do access.
The problem is symptomatic of a buyer that has looked slightly above their budget line and resources and are now trying to figure out how to make it work. So ask questions first, good luck,
