I am representing the buyer, can't afford to short change him. We had the property inspection done last week, property inspector pointed out there are about 25 tiles broken on the roof.
Fine, No problem, I got the roofing guy on the roof for detailed inspection, he discovered there are about 80+ tiles broken. loose mortar, loose metal ridge, loose flashings and exposed/ripped tar paper along with accumulation of debris, nails and what not.
It is a clay tile roof, there are obvious signs of leaks in many places inside the house. Cost to have a 5 year certification is little more than 12K ... cost includesthe repairs/replacement of all damaged stuff replace the double underlay and put back the same tiles.
Property is lovable and buyers want to buy it but not with all the obvious leaks. I need you expert input how to negotiate to satisfy the buyer and not annoy the sellers. i am stressed .. going out for dinner
