This is really more of a legal question: What do you need to disclose to future buyers on the "Form 17" disclosure statement. Consultation with an attorney would be prudent.

It's too bad that the buyer who backed out let you know why they were backing out, at least if they didn't attempt negotiate a compromise. Now that you know their claims you have at least three choices: 1. Disclose it without any further investigation. 2. Disclose it with additional investigation and disclosing that additional conclusion. 3. Disclose it and make some repairs. If this buyer gave you their entire inspection report, you'll need to do that with every item mentioned in the report.

As to your specific question, IMHO another inspector won't be of any use. You'll need to hire a structural engineer or some sort of other specialist in foundations. And even if that specialist gives you a clean bill of health, I suspect most attorneys would still advise you to disclose what happened on the prior sale and what the specialist said.

I would ask your agent to check how many condos have sold in Lynnwood in the recent past. The problem with condo selling right now, is that the houses are going for the same price as some of the condos, so you may want to think about leasing it through your agent. Your agent is right - it is the market! ... more

I agree with Natalee below. All this conversation should be going on with your agent, since you have an agent. If you are not sure they know what they are doing with short sales, or if they are not comfortable consulting with you, then you should consider getting another agent to represent you. My short sale clients (4 of them at present) are not in this predicament at all. Good luck to you. ... more
