What recourse does a Seller have when the Buyer's Engineering report has unnecessary requests???The buyer of our house had a home inspector plus an engineer from the same inspection company do a report on the house and submitted back to us a long list of demands. While getting estimates from numerous contractors, they all advised us that the expensive work was not necessary. Our "dual realtor" insists that we do this work regardless, in order to get the approval from the Buyer's engineer so we can go to closing. I find it outrageous that we would be expected to spend thousands of dollars fixing issues that we've been told by professionals do not need fixing. What recourse does a seller have in such a situation besides backing out of the deal? We feel like we are being held over a barrel, because we have already invested a lot of money in starting the purchase of our next house. Please advise us as to what options we may have to keep from spending money on these unnecessary repairs. Our realtor claims we have no choice but to do as the buyer's engineer has recommended in his report.November 04 2013 - Barclay-Kingston00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
