Special Assessment right before closing, Need advice pleaseBuying a Condo in Hawaii, Sellers Disclosure said "Not to My Knowledge" in the Special Assessment section. We are 3 days from CLOSING and my agent gets a letter from Seller's agent -- Special Assessment of $7000 per unit, due Jan 1, 2014. Elevators in building are always broken, letter states it take 20-30 minutes wait time to get up or down. Whoa !!! My experience is I waited 10 minutes (that was awful in itself) and assumed it was Down temporarily due to maintenance.IS IT REASONABLE for me to request they pay this Assessment or do a price reduction to cover the costs ? Cash deal, no loan, have met other contingenies, like I said we are 3 days from closing escrow. The had the letter in their hands since Oct 9 and waited over 2 weeks to present to my agent. Please advise, thank you.October 27 2013 - Waikiki00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
