Contract issuesMy wife and I are first time home buyers - and we put an offer in on a house that got accepted - we were eager because we had an offer fall apart before.I unfortunately did not scrutinize the document like I should have.. We initially said the appliances would be included but not guaranteed - but in the end they aren't leaving the appliances and it ended up in the contract that way. They also wrote in that the central air conditioning was inoperable. The contract states that I can back out only if there is a major repair/replacement of $1500 or more that the seller won't fix.Well - being naive, I had MY agent pick the inspector. Of course, nothing came in over $1500 except the central air. There was found to be termite damage that was recently treated and repaired. The roof also is 19 years old and has moss growing along with evidence of a previous leak in the attic. I don't want to go through the whole laundry list here, but there were several other things that needed replacement orrepair. None of them are over $1500, but added up they are a considerable cost.At first, I figured I got the house at a good price with the seller concession so why complain? I can put the money into it over time. But the more I look at it, this might need considerable work right from the get go that I don't have money for. There is an FHA appraisal this week - so if the appraisal comes in on key with minimal repairs needed to be done to satisfy FHA - am I stuck not being able to get the sellers to fix any of this?I like the house. But I have an uneasy feeling that both the roof and the termite issues might be more than meets the eye. They had a deal fall apart about 4 months prior, and ended up listing the house again with significant reduction in price.What are my options here?March 03 2014 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
