Given the buyer’s bright eyed desire to buy this place (the townhouse was, really, pretty good. This is just the garage.) I doubt it will. But, I wrote it down and reported it.
Don’t you just hate it when the builder really messes things up and the client expects you to find a professional, workable and inexpensive fix for the situation that the builder created? Not buy the house, not an option. It’s a foreclosure and they are getting it for a song. They are SOOOO smart, having a good credit rating, a job and a good mortgauge. Besides, the wife just LOVES the appliances and the trim carpentry!
But, when stuff goes south, they always want you to fix it. Besides, in Illinois, you cannot sue the city inspectors and just try to find the builder. He took his $100K and went back to Poland.
