Offtopic, can we turn tomorrow into a cat themed day with little to no election coverage? Maybe we can elect the best cat?


It would probably just turn into Democats v Repawblicans.

Somebody's got to help me.
The seller must have known.
There's got to be SOME way that this isn't MY problem.

It could have been worse. In addition to the rodents in the walls, her unfortunately-racist-named cat could have led her to a subterranean hell-scape below the house where she could have had the very sanity blasted out of her head by the revelation of a Terrible Ancient Secret that would have caused her to dine upon her neighbor to the accompaniment of the infernal piping of a blind idiot Elder God.

So at least she's got that going for her.

Smeggy Smurf: As an architect i'm going to put her name down as a Client To Turn Down.


I will mark her on my list as well. Reminds me of clients who want a 700 SqFt double-height foyer, then asks us to spec $0.89 sq/ft laminate flooring she found on sale at Lumber Liquidators. Volume over quality, saving money in the wrong places.

HAHAHHA you are so right on the money here. What someone with 1 million dollar house budget does is buys a 300 dollar house in the peg and 700,00 cottage in kenora

jiggitysmith: The reason you have an inspection is so you have legal recourse to back out of a deal before you close (and still keep your good-faith deposit). If you find something horrific like this, you're only out the money for the inspection, which pales in comparison to anything it may find (just doing a Radon test for an additional 100$ on top of our typical inspection up here saved us 1000$ by forcing the sellers to fix it).


Your realtor is also intensely aware of this and will happily recommend the fastest, cheapest replacement referee to rubberstamp the place as acceptable so the deal can close. Anyone who shows up with a hygrometer and a radon detector will never ever be invited back. Find someone who makes your realtor's skin crawl and blood turn to blood and hire that guy.

I don't know how much of a case she has against the seller. I'm assuming they have some sort of boilerplate "we swear we don't know anything about the NIMH colony living in every wall of the house" language in the contract, but I don't know how you'd go about proving the seller didn't know anything.
