Hi. After many months of being on the sale market my condo has
finally got a buyer BUT we found we are not 'home free" yet in that the
inspection done this week left the potential buyer with questions about
our cinder block exterior.
Apparently it was "sealed" when it was first built 7 years ago but has
never been sealed since. The twin building next door was sealed this
year at a cost of $10,000.00 (special assessmemt.) Our building chose
to do tuckpointing instead as the tuckpointer told the ass'n. that
sealing is a waste of money.
We have had no moisture problems from the cinder blocks but we have had
some wind swept water come in on the side through the window frames
which have been re-done.
Can you think of anything we can do to reassure this would-be buyer
that our cement/cinder block side wall construction (6 flat) is ok? As
the whole cinder block construction as it is a "common element" -
therefore we can't make promises for the condo ass'n. as we are only
one unit among six.
Thanks very, very much for any advice as we are totally worn out and
don't know what to do at this point when we thought we had a sale and
now it may be slipping away.
