Silverstar House Inspection Update

So......I'm not happy. FI went to the house and met the inspector and hung around while he did the inspection.


Seals on the windows are basically gone. Okay, fine. We can replace windows slowly as we go. Not a big deal.


The addition probably gets hot in the summer because it only has 1 vent leading to it. Cool. Solved with a window unit. 


Needs a new dishwasher because the current one leaks. Boo! But we've been hand washing dishes for years now, so we can continue until we can buy a new one.


The shower in the master bathroom is leaking. Through the floor. Under the house. And the flooring is warped from water on the underside of the house. OMG! This is a major problem! 


So, the inspector hands his report over to the sellers tomorrow. I have no idea what's going to happen or what to do. Ugh, I'm so frustrated!

Oh Star, that stinks!  I am not 100% sure (maybe some of our other ladies can chime in too), but I believe that you can go back to the seller and ask them to fix the bathroom or deduct the cost of fixing this from the sale price. 


Sending positive vibes over to you that everything works out.  We're here if you need to vent, because I know the other ladies will agree with me that this is definitely a stressful process!  xoxo

That's rubbish! So sorry it wasn't all straightforward but it's better to find out now.

I think Becca is right that you can get the sellers to repair or deduct the cost of repair.

Hope it all works out for you xx

Thanks girls!


Apparently, the gas was not turned on at at the house either. It's been a rental property for 20+ years. Anyway, they're having the gas turned on for 24 hours on Friday so the inspection can be completed. Then we'll talk about what to do. 


This whole thing is a giant PITA! =P


Thanks again for letting me vent.


-HUGS-
