I'm closing on a fannie mae manufactured home in 7 days. I had a inspection 3 weeks ago and everything looked good. Yesterday I went in the crawl space and it had 2 inches water over 90% of floor. Its been raining with no gutters installed. I found water coming in where the deck attaches to the house, water drains back toward the house then down against the floor joist and into the middle of the crawl. It was OK at inspection. 80K on a good day for 30K deal. If I back out I lose 1000 dep and apx $600 in fees. This defect has been there all along just unnoticed.
Q - Has anyone sucessfully gone back to seller (Fannie Mae in my case) after signing contract and added addendum to reduce purchase price due to new information?
