Who pays for suggested repairs?My mom passed away in May and had a reverse mortgage. We put her house up for sale and worked hard on getting it sold. No offers until the lender filed a Notice of Default and then we received a couple of low ball offers. As the reverse mortgage company has us over a barrel we went with one of the offers that was a local buyer and would be all cash. At the time we were told that the buyers wouldn't "beat us up on the inspections." The house is a country property and it was built in 1985. My parents were elderly but did their best keeping things in good repair. Now that inspections are being done they are coming back with thousands of dollars of suggested repairs. The buyers are already getting the house for $69K less than our lowest price. I really don't want to have to pay for all the repairs they think they need. I am the executor of the estate and there are other financial obligations that must be paid off with the proceeds of the sale. I am being represented by a Realtor but it seems like the ball is totally in the buyers court. If they back out the reverse mortgage company can foreclose and put the house up for auction. Am I being unreasonable to expect that with such a drastic price reduction that the buyer should pay for the repairs they feel they need to have?October 31 2013 - Sebastopol00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
