I understand this is an older thread, just thought I would add my two cents in case anyone new reads this.

Like many of the other members said, what is not good, that is a subjective term. That being said you should know that there are a number of products on the market that can help people with lower credit scores. Programs like FHA loans, SONYMA loans, SONYMA FHA+, SONYMA "Achieving the Dream" just to name a few. I would suggest contacting a mortgage broker to go through your financial history to determine where you stand. ... more

Jeff Mistretta answered:
It's common practice for a seller to provide their buyer with a treatment(with a 1 year guarantee) if termites are detected during the inspection. Termites are extremely common in NY. Most homes have had, have it will have termites in its lifetime.
With that being said, the inspection seems like it was done during a cold part of the year. A time when 'active' termites don't really exist. During this time of the year an inspector is more like a detective searching for signs that termites may exist there. Besides actual wood damage there are very few things to look for. You could Google signs of termites and see for yourself.
I'm sorry that this happened but it's good that you are aware and can maintain the home properly now.
I believe the inspector is being very generous with their offer. Keep in mind, it's only a visual inspection. If he didn't see anything at that time, then he didn't . Good luck

threaten the inspector!! tell him you will drag his company's name through years of mud and despair on the internet for not catching a major problem which you paid them good money to detect!!
sounds like a half-a$$ inspector to me! didn't notice water damage/intrusion?????

don't just accept this crap,contact the inspector immediately! what the hell did you pay them for in the first place? at least get your money back or warn him of the wrath of hell which shall begin to rain on him for decades to come!.....have a nice day! :)

Thomas Moser answered:
Bathrooms can run from a few thousand for very basic up to many thousands of dollars, so it's hard to really answer your question accurately. I see you mention an ejector pump, so I'm assuming this is going in the basement. Be prepared, they last only about five years and then will need to be replaced. ... more

Did the landlord take money off of the rent for these repairs and improvements to be made?

Much will depend on each landlord's requirements; generally proof of employment, pay stubs/tax returns, credit report, references, etc.

Westcott Group answered:
Not sure what the purpose is for you to look for comps, The reason why I ask is that if you are selling a home you may want to get a professional appraisel by a licensed appraiser familiar with your area. If you are buying a home and just want to see what has sold in the area has sold properties posted.
If you are trying to grieve your taxes you may opt to do either of the aforementioned choices.
Good Luck

Jerry Cibulski answered:
If you are working with your agent as a Buyers Agent then your commission is established in the contract you have signed between you and your agent. If you have not signed a contract and are working with an agent as a Sellers Agent then the commission is compensated in the closing from the sellers between the agent and the sellers. You can discuss this with your agent to clarify. ... more

This is a very serious transaction you should consult with an attorney for sound advice. You may want to consult a realestate attorney as well as your matrimonial lawyer. Good Luck.
