The house we home tend in Boise is amazing, 4400 SF, views of downtown Boise, wonderful place for us. And FREE since we own our Home Tending company. It's on the market and overpriced, so we've been fortunate to be here since NOV. 2008 with little showing interruption.
However, we recently found out the builder routed the sewer lines to the wrong place and waste water as well as dirty dishwasher and clothes washer water was going into the storm drain and heading toward the river. They had to shut off our sewer and we are without some of the basics until they can fix this MON and TUE.
The owner who lives out of the area doesn't want to pay for the repairs since she wasn't the one who hooked up to the wrong thing. The builder is blaming the city because the inspector approved it prior to closing. So who is responsible for the cost of this? Our home tending contract states the seller is responsible for all repairs over $50 but meanwhile, while seller and builder debate who has to pay, we are stuck without usage of the bathrooms!
We are forced to agree to a payment plan with the company who will fix it all up to the tune of $5k. Or else find another home to home tend, which is possible, but not what we'd ideally like to do. I am just hoping the city is forced to bear the cost since they approved it this way. What would you all do if you were in this position?
