We signed a contract to buy a house. We were told that the roof had 7-8 years left. We agreed to no inspection. We then find out in order to get insurance, the state of Florida says that an inspection is mandatory. We hired an inspector who said there was a soft spot in the roof decking and an attic wiring issue and that the roof has maybe 5 years left. The homeowner says she fixed the wiring and fixed the roof issue. She got an estimate for a new roof at $15,000.00. We offered to take $10,000.00 and she agreed before she had the repairs and the estimate. The insurance company said that it must be reinspected. She will not pay for the reinspection. We now want the $15,000.00 for the new roof. She is saying no. We are ready to walk away from the deal, but our realtor says that the time limit has run out on the inspection process and we will loose our escrow. We were misinformed on the inspection process. The realtor says she did not know the Florida law on mandatory inspection for insurance.
