Buying a home---seller disclosed gas smell! help!


I agree with you. I told my husband we needed a home inspection. He didn't want to since we were in a bidding war and thought we could lose the house over it. I told him if anything was wrong with the house it was on his shoulders! We have already signed the offer and it is conditional upon financing. If it seems like a major prob we can tell the bank to reject our financing but at this point that's all we can do! From the majority of responses it seems like it could be a common thing, more of a nuisance than anything. If anyone thinks it's more than that please let me know though and we will have a home inspection done or the gas company in when we move in.

Buying a home---seller disclosed gas smell! help!


Ms Smellhelp,

the point isnt the gas smell issue. The point is to have an entire house inspected by a proper technician to check the foundation, electrical, plumbing, roof, furnace, AC, drainage, gas, termites, etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc..

For less than $500 you find out if you bought a clunker or not.

This is the process. Submit a bid, bid gets accepted, you go to attorney review, the attorney's have in the contract that a binding condition is approval after an entire home inspection is conducted. If you don't like what the inspector says (lets say he says the foundation is cracked or termites have destroyed have the structure) you say you want out of the contract.

its simple.

(sorry for thread drift guys).

IF it's a gas smell - IE from the GAS company, that needs to be resolved ASAP
