When purchasing a house "as-is," the buyer generally has to sign documentation to that fact. If your sister-in-law has received loan approval but not yet closed escrow, she may be able to back out of the deal. She will probably lose whatever earnest money deposit she put down on the property. If her agent doesn't have the answers she is looking for, she may need to consult a reputable real estate attorney.
