It's a long time since I last sold a PPOR, and things have changed. Here's one change that even our real estate agent hadn't heard of before. I don't think it's a problem, and we're asking our solicitor for advice anyway, but I just wondered what people here think.
Agent has a request from the purchaser to obtain a statement from us in a form that is part of their pest inspection company's disclaimer clause. It looks like this:
That feels to me like the company trying to duck any responsibility for its own inspection. I don't like it from my side, but I can't understand why the purchaser would go along with it. What are they paying the inspector for???(a) Obtain a statement from the owner as to:
i. any Timber Pest activity or damage;
ii. timber repairs or other repairs
iii. alterations or other problems to the property known to them;
iv. any other work carried out to the property including Timber Pest treatments; and
v. obtain copies of any paperwork insured and the details of all work carried out.
What do you worldly wise characters think?
