Yikes! Ten months sounds like an awfully long time to hold a Seller responsible for repairs, and in the "real" world unless the Seller is negligent and fails to disclose material facts - done usually means done! The Seller sells. The Buyer buys. And they all live happily ever after...

I think it's about being related; you being close enough to be reachable for anything and everything that may come up with the house. Of course maintenance is simply a fact of home ownership!

Since we're talking about a "family" matter, you will have to discuss it and hash it out. That, or avoid each other at summer cook outs. Whether or not you are legally responsible is something only a lawyer can say, and legal advice is never a bad thing. In fact, it may squash this repair request and those which may come in the future since you will have a "professional" opinion.

Good luck!

Check with an attorney, but my instincts say no. Whoever owned the home at the time the repairs were made should be responsible. Just check with an attorney to be sure.

How did your agent get the funds?

This is something I have never heard of.

Are you saying agent took part of your loan proceeds?

If so, then you need to contact an attorney, as you have a very strange situation going on here.

I hope you have a good resolution!
