Are these repair requests too much?In NJ, our contract states we are buying the home as-is and can only walk away from the contract if certain major issues are not addressed - the home's structure, major systems not working, mold/radon or flooding issues, etc. Thankfully our home inspection did not reveal any of these. However, there are a number of things the report did point out that we will need to budget for in the near future, just due to the age of the home. .Our sellers are an older couple in their 80s and are the original owners - the house is 52 years old. We dont want to offen them by asking for certain repairs, and we know we're not entitled to them, but we'd at least like to ask. Do you think these requests are reasonable or should we eliminate a few?- adding GFI outlets in kitchen, bathroom and outside where needed. The house also still has older wiring and a few 2 prong outlets but we figured we'd do those updates on our own eventually.-sidewalk has a few "lifts" where roots pushed them up, and we think if the twp doesnt require them to be replaced/fixed, our insurance will.-garage door opener is older and doesn't have the auto-reverse safety feature. asking for that to be replaced.-wall unit a/c in a bedroom doesn't work. House has central air, so we dont know why the wall unit was needed, but since its in the wall and not a window, we can't easily patch it up and would like a new one.- garbage disposal doesn't work. other appliances are included in the home (dishwasher, fridge, washer, dryer) and they are giving a home warranty, but we dont know if the disposal is covered.We will also suggest/request they consider negotiating with us for a credit for the repairs or assisting with closing costs. Do you think these requests are excessive? Should we focus on just a few? Or, do you think there's no harm in askingAugust 20 2012 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
