In my area this is the appropriate method of repairing this. The wall was only 4 ft tall with wood studded wall above. The owner was not present and the agent over-nighted my report to him. He gives me a call and asks a hundred questions. I try to assure him that this is the proper fix- I even told him that I have had this fix applied to one of the homes I built. I further went on in the report to give him the name of the concrete contractor for the foundation and suggested that he contact the company and let them know that you have bought the home, ask about the crack, get their response, and be on record for any future warranty work should it become necessary. Yesterday I get a call from the buyer’s agent and she said he is backing out of the deal. She said that they walked in and immediately said we will take it and wanted the home. She is afraid that this is a case of “buyer’s remorse”.
I feel that I was correct in reporting it as I did. The seller called and disagreed with me. How would everyone have reported this?
Thanks in advance,
