Oops

Okay. There is a little glitch in the house sale. According to the home inspector, our oil tank leaks. Of course, we've had the tank inspected every year for the past fifteen years and there has never been a hint of trouble. That, and there is absolutely no oil smell in the small room. Still, I will call in ThermoShell to reinspect it and get that inspection in writing.

And little glitch number two is that the buyers are claiming they can't get insurance because of aluminum wiring. If that were true, no home in our neighbourhood would be insured. What a load of BS. Our real estate agent suggested they find another insurance broker.

Drat for glitches like that.
Hope the buyers follow the advice of your RA agent.

I'm not from the US, so maybe this is a silly notion, but wouldn't it be reasonable to expect of a home inspector that he proves his assessment and/or points the leak out to you?
Or am I just stating the obvious here? :)

Thank you for your comment. Actually, the home inspector works for the buyer, not the seller. That means we get the information through the real estate agent.

I'm in Canada and it may be different in the US.
I'm sorry you've run into problems with the house sale. I hope you manage to sort things out soon. It sounds to me like the buyers should find another insurance broker.
Thanks for the commiseration. Our agent believes the buyers (and their agent) are just trying to nickel and dime us. We're allowing the buyers to knock the price down by $500 only if they waive all conditions and finalize the deal by Friday. It is a take-it-or-leave-it offer. Soon we'll know for certain.
