structural damage to a home
You would probably be better off cancelling this deal and looking for something else. You don't want to be generalcontracting (and watchdogging) something when you would rather be moving in and enjoying the house, and maybe doing a few small jobs like painting and replacing a few electric outlets.
If you really want to go ahead with this deal, a price reduction should include paying you for your time getting the structural repairs done as well as for the material and labor of a contractor.
The disadvantages of crab apple trees. In summer, the apples are too sour to pick and eat. In winter the birds come and leave dropping all over the place.
