Conflicting Inspections - Now What?
We are selling my 89 yr. old parents' house. Neighbors advised us that several homes in the neighborhood had roofs replaced recently due to a powerful hail storm last fall. We filed a claim with the insurance company and the claim was denied - "no evidence of hail damage." We also had the home professionally inspected prior to listing and the inspection found nothing significant, including the roof being okay. Now we are a week away from closing and the buyer has found out about the neighbors getting new roofs and he hired his own inspection of the roof. His guy says there's hail damage and we should buy him a new roof. Who's right? I think he's just trying to scare us. By the way, we have an attorney representing us and have also asked his advice. Haven't heard from him yet, but wondered if anyone out there has seen this before?
