So we had the inspection at the new house yesterday. All went pretty well. Found a few issues, but nothing that will make the house fall down 'round our heads. So we're pretty happy.
One of the issues discovered, though, was a leak that was relatively new, but was BAD. In one of the upstairs bathrooms. So the sellers got right to work figuring it out, and today I got a text from my agent about it.
"FYI. They r starting new bath restoration tomorrow on [the new] house. Could b remodel. Bottom line not something we will have to put on resolution."
I wrote her back saying, "Cool! Thanks for the update."
But then I thought about it a bit, and I updated with a text that said, "Just thinking about the possible remodel on that bath...should I be cool w/ that? What if they choose sub-par materials since they won't be the ones living there? :/"
She said she'd check into how they're handling it, and let me know.
I think I'm right about this, and so far people are agreeing that I should be concerned. But what does everyone think? And does anyone have any advice in this kind of situation? I mean, obviously, I want my agent to handle the particulars. But if they're tearing up a bathroom, I either want money to put it back together myself, or I want some amount of say in what they're going to put back in there. Leo and I will be the ones living with it for the next 20-some years...so, yeah. Hrrmmm...
