St. Jude pray for us!
The inspection finally took place yesterday. The date had been put off over and over again due to problems hooking up the propane to the house. You see, the house is a foreclosure and has been vacant for quite some time. It seems that the company who winterized the house did an incompetent job.
When we finally got to inspection, we discovered the pipes had not been properly winterized either. The pipes had burst sometime in the past week and there is considerable water damage to the lower level.
We immediately went to the bank and asked for a reduction in price. The bank told us so sad too bad. We knew it was an "as is" deal and they don't negotiate price after an offer has been accepted.
So, we may be walking away from the Charlotte Mason house. We'll see what happens on Monday.
