Julie:When you close on a home in NC, you are accepting it in its existing condition. You should carefully read section 4 of your contract. Section 4(c) Repair/ Improvement Negotiations/ Agreement: Buyer acknowledges and understands that unless the parties agree otherwise, THE PROPERTY IS BEING SOLD IN ITS CURRENT CONDITION. Buyer and Seller acknowledge and understand that they may, but are not required to, engage in negotiations for repairs/improvements to the Property. Buyer is advised to make any repair/improvement requests in sufficient time to allow repair/improvement negotiations to be concluded prior to the expiration of the Due Diligence Period. Any agreement that the parties may reach with respect to repairs/improvements shall be considered an obligation of the parties and is an addition to this Contract and as such, must be in writing and signed by the parties in accordance with Paragraph 20.
Section 4(g) CLOSING SHALL CONSTITUTE ACCEPTANCE OF THE PROPERTY IN ITS THEN EXISTING CONDITION UNLESS PROVISION IS OTHERWISE MADE IN WRITING.
A claim against the seller may be a difficult path. If the MLS stated the home had a heat pump, your claim might be against the listing agency and agent. If the inspector report stated there was a heat pump, but weather conditions did not permit testing, you may have a claim against them. Talk to an attorney.We just had a client buy a home with an AC unit labeled as "AC only" on the manufacturer tag, but it was site modified to have a reversing valve, two metering devices and two bypass valves so it functioned as a heat pump. I'd get a second opinion from an HVAC specialist. I'd ask the seller for the installing HVAC company name and have them demonstrate its operation. If they billed for but did not install a heat pump, then they may make it right.
If there is no heat pump and you don't get anywhere asking nicely, you could file complaints against the firms professional associations and licensing boards.
