I have an inspection & the (potential) buyer has asked us to look at some things specifically from the disclosure sheet the seller filled out. 1 item is the furnace - it was disclosed that they sometimes have to turn the furnace on & off several times to get it to “work” & that it’s been looked at twice & still not working properly. The client asked us to check this out. Well, all we can do is try & see if it works the day of the inspection & note that, right? If not, we’ll know it’s still not fixed. But it’s not like we can repair the unit. I just am not real sure what the client expects…other than us noting if it’s not working properly, which we would certainly do.
The second item is faulty windows that allowed water penetration & staining on walls. Seller says this was due to faulty installation & has been repaired. Luckily, I think it’s supposed to rain later this week! so, maybe we can be there to check that.
I just wondered how you handle it when the client has specific items like this…just pay special attention & point out the obvious??
