Illegal AdditionHi my husband and I have made an offer on a house that we really love. Well after doing all the paper work and semi close to closing; our inspector informed us he could not find a crawl space for the 'family room' or any way to get in it if there is one. Making us suspect it's an addition. Our agent checked and saw no history of permits and checked with the sellers agents and they said they know nothing of it. Me being skeptical since our agent said it should be 'okay', looking into the county's assessor's site to find out that the square feet is smaller and the layout does not include the family room.I e-mailed her to see what we should do to to legalize the addition. I also want to know what others think we should do. I know there's the risk of the county having us tear down the addition or paying back taxes. In all honesty I want the sellers to pay for the costs to legalize the additions. Or can they reduce the price for us or is it too late for that? We do love the addition but I don't want to pay more than what we're already paying.Thank you!
