What to do if a seller refuses to make repairs?I am buying a house and after a home inspection learned that the house needs a new roof since the current roof is leaking into the attic. The seller refuses to make the necessary repairs and does not want to give credit. The house was not advertised "as-is". When negotiating the price it was done assuming the house is in move in condition. Is the seller obligated to make the necessary repairs since the house was not advertised "as-is"? If they don't want to make repairs or grant credit for the repair what can I do? Can I sue them?November 09 2009 - Edison0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
