If the repairs were negotiated as part of the contract, the buyers are required to fix what was agreed upon in the inspection negotiations. However, if a know defect was not disclosed and found after the closing, the previous owners would more that likely be required to make necessary repairs. The key word here is peoprly disclose. If you know of an issue and you did not disclose it, you could be held liable. So, disclose, disclose, disclose!!!! On the other hand, if the inspection section was waived you would not be responsible for reapir unless you did noe disclose a know defect.
