Did you get a property inspection? If so, was the A/C tested and was it functioning? Did the seller indicate on the Transfer Disclosure Statement (TDS) that is was working? It's possible it was working when it was tested but is not working now. Do you have a home warranty? These are questions to ask of our agent.

Someone in Pittsburg should answer this for you, but here in Arizona, once you go under contract you have an inspection period (usually 10 days). During this time you, the buyer would hire a home inspector to check everything out.  If something wasn't working at the time, you can ask the seller to repair it - they don't have to - but you can ask for repairs.  If something breaks down between the end of the inspection and the closing, the seller must fix it (they have to maintain the property the way it was when you went under contract).  If you have already closed on the property, you are probably out of luck, but again, please follow up with your agent (or his or her broker) for the laws specific to your area.  Good luck to you!
