Lack of Brick Ties

Hello Everyone...

I recently had a home inspected in hope of purchasing it soon. The inspection report stated that one exterior brick wall had extreme movement when pushed. Per the report, this points to a lack of brick ties.

Just curious, I was wondering what the long term consequences of this will be and how much it would cost to repair? I am strongly considering not purchasing the home but instead asking the seller to lower the price of the house to cover repairs

Thanks for your input!

Lack of Brick Ties

Take a mason over there. I'm sure he'd be glad to help you.
