Will Seller Make The Necessary Home Repairs?

Question: My wife and I have placed an offer on a property that is currently owned by a >

We now have a signed contract, and had our own home inspection conducted on the property. Our home inspector has determined that the cause of the leak was due to improper drainage at the rear of the house, at the base of the chimney. This has caused the chimney to settle improperly, with the base leaning slightly away from the home, while the upper portion has rather dramatically tilted towards the roof. Our inspector recommended we have an engineer determine if the chimney is structurally sound, and what steps need to be made to repair/replace the chimney.

Our question is two-fold. First, is the >

Answer: Working with a >

Because the company has not lived in the house, and has no real knowledge of its condition, quite often those houses will be sold in their "as is" condition. This means that you buy the house in its present condition and the >

However, from the facts that you have described, it really makes no difference if the seller is a ">

You had the home inspected and a couple of major problems were discovered. Does your contract contain a home inspection contingency? The standard home inspection contingency that I usually see gives purchasers two options. If they are dissatisfied for any reason with the inspectors report and timely advise the seller of their concerns, they can cancel the contract and get their earnest money deposit returned.

Alternatively, they can present a list of defects to the seller, who has three days to advise the purchasers that 1 all of the work will be done, 2 only some of the listed items will be corrected, or 3 that none of the work will be corrected. Unless the seller agrees to do all of the work, the purchaser than has an additional three days in which to accept the sellers proposal or cancel the contract.

You must read your contract very carefully. Most inspection contingencies have time limits which must be strictly followed. If the purchaser is to notify the seller within three business days, and misses that deadline, this contingency is considered to have been waived and the purchasers remain bound by the terms of the contract.

In your situation, if your sales contract only requires the seller to convey title to you "as is", then the seller will most likely not agree to correct the condition of the fireplace. In that case, and assuming that you do have an inspection contingency, unless you are prepared to spend your own money fixing the situation, one of your options is to cancel the contract.

You do have other options, however. If you can get a licensed contractor -- or better yet a city housing inspector -- to give you a statement that the fireplace condition is a housing code violation, that will give you a lot of leverage. In some jurisdictions, the existence of such violations is grounds for cancelling your sales contract. You should discuss this with an attorney licensed to practice in the jurisdiction where your house is located.

There is one other option that may be available. The seller gave you an earlier inspection report that represented all the leaks have been corrected. While the >

Heres a suggestion should the seller be willing to make the necessary repairs. Get a couple of bids from independent contractors and tell the seller that you would prefer a cash credit at settlement instead of having the seller do the work. All too often, the seller may not hire a licensed contractor, and you may have problems in the future.

Benjamin Franklin Inspires Buyers to Succeed

Everyone is in a hurry these days and real estate buyers are no exception. In their haste to get the deal done, they can undermine the success of their significant purchase and their long-term goals.

Benjamin Franklins observation that "Haste makes waste" serves as an excellent summary for the tendency of many buyers to act too quickly and, therefore, not gain all the benefits available to them.

Haste to read listings and view properties can mean many buyers leap into the buying process before they are sure of what they want and need, and before they are aware of all their financial and real estate options;

Haste to squeeze a real estate purchase into already jam-packed schedules and smartphone-driven communication overload can add pressure that results in hastily-made, misguided and hard-to-live with decisions;

Haste to act in high-pressure and multiple-offer situations may lead buyers to jump at a property without a clear picture of what they are buying and what compromises they are making.

Slowing down the buying process once it gets started can be a challenge since real estate is all about acting on urgency. Once you view an acceptable property the question becomes, "Are you ready to make an offer or will you risk losing out?"

The key to success lies in developing "smarts" before you jump into the sales funnel and face the pressure of making an offer. Start by taking time to learn how to act in your own best interest beforeyou dig through listings, view properties, and make a choice then youll benefit on many levels.

Rush into the home buying processwhether you are intent on a condominium, a vacation property, or a detached home - and your lack of preparation can make you vulnerable to THREE COMMON BUYER MISTAKES that arise from acting in haste and regretting in hindsight:

1. Again Franklin hits the 21st-Century point on the head with his statement: "By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail."

Work with your chosen real estate professional to familiarize yourself - and everybody who is part of your buying team - with the entire buying process, from start to finish, before you plunge in:

What are your "essentials" when analyzing your needs and wants?

How will the real estate professional match these parameters with potential neighborhoods, building >

What is involved in being pre-approved for financing and what are the benefits?

How do you view a prospective property to uncover its full value and potential, and to avoid being distracted by staging or by a property that shows poorly?

What is "an offer" and what does it legally commit you to and protect you from?

What strategies can compensate for typical "unexpected problems" like multiple offers, bad home inspection reports, last-minute financing issues etc.?

What happens between the day your offer to purchase has been accepted until the day you move into your new home?

What recourse will you have if problems pop up after youve settled into your house or condominium unit?

Once you understand what will happen, what rights you have, and how your real estate professional can head off and resolve problems that arise, youre ready. This knowledge will take some of the pressure off and provide self-preservation perspectives for the many decisions ahead.

2. "We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid," says Franklin and explains why knowing who is working in your best interest is essential to success. How the real estate industry works for buyers can be confusing.

Sellers have a listing salesperson and listing brokerage committed to placing their interestsfinancial, legal, and otherwisefirst, ahead of everything including real estate commission.

Buyers have to ask questions to find out which, if any, real estate professionals are legally bound to place the buyers interests first. The buyer agent >

not happen automatically for buyers.

Be smart. Clarify, in writing, who will negotiate for you at every step along the buying process before you start.

3. "He that can have patience can have what he will" said Franklin, long before smartphones and apps were even dreamt of, but he hit the mark when it comes to getting the right accurate information before you act.

Click on one of the growing number of real estate apps and you instantly have data at your fingertips. With information, faster is not necessarily better:

Often apps and online sources condense or generalize when a buyer really needs specific details >

Data can be incomplete or inaccurate, but the average buyer will may not be aware of these deficiencies until it is too late.

Significant issues like property condition, problems regarding abutting properties, liens or work orders, and unregistered changes are just a few details which may be lacking in digital offerings.

Take the time to listen to the local, experienced real estate professionals who work for you since they can provide >

Religion In A Homeowners Association

America is engaged in a war of cultures. Almost daily there seems to be some crisis somewhere >

Homeowner associations have a unique opportunity to reverse or moderate these attacks on Americas traditional values and liberties. As private organizations, they have the right and flexibility to decide how issues of faith expression are dealt with and avoid the nonsense of political correctness.

While HOAs cant enact rules and regulations that contradict the Bill of Rights, they do have some latitude on how these rights are played out. Free speech can be restricted on private property. One example that comes to mind is limiting personal signs in the common area. In other words, the fact that America enjoys free speech doesnt entitle a citizen to crash a private party to express it. So it is with signs. HOAs can control or restrict signs in the common area if thats what the members want.

When it comes to >

>. HOA clubhouses are usually made available for private use by members and residents. If a resident wants to host a poker party, a quilting club or High Mass, they are all legal activities in every state of the country and, as such, the HOA should not have a policy restricting the activity.

The HOA is not obligated to allow private use of the clubhouse but since most clubhouses are ra>

Restricting Outside Groups. The HOA may have a restriction that limits use to residents and their guests and preclude outside groups from using the facility if no resident is involved. If outside groups are not allowed, the ban needs to extend to all of them.

Limiting Access to Schedule. There may be limitations placed on requests to monopolize the clubhouse schedule for a set time each week.

Limited to Legal Purpose. Use activity can be limited to those that are lawful and do not disturb the community noise, smell, lighting, etc..

Charging a Fee. The HOA can invoke a reasonable fee for private use since use creates wear and tear on the facilities.

Christmas Ornaments. Another controversial topic that comes up is whether the HOA should allow Christmas ornaments to be displayed. There seems to be an impression that all ornaments should be forbidden. The real answer is "yes and no": Its really up to the members to decide and that decision only should impact the general common area. If decorating the common area with Christmas decorations is something most of the residents feel appropriate, so be it. HOAs are private property controlled by democratic vote. Not everyone will get their way.
