They did not check yes or no but simply stated&nbsp;"In sellers opinion typical of 80 + year home" &nbsp;In less than 9 months we have had two floods in our basement. We pulled off the baseboards to discover mold.&nbsp;Our upper level and lower level had water damage on the walls 7 days after we moved in and we are still trying to fix.
