Can I Buy or Sell a House With A Bad Roof?
We all know keeping a house with a bad roof is dangerous. Leaks can damage to rest of the house.
The first place to get impacted is the attic quickly followed by the interior ceiling. When water gets to the interior ceiling, water damage can flow to the fans and ceiling mounted lights. That expensive paint job? Kiss it good-bye.
Mold and mildew growth are a risk with a long term unaddressed leak. Getting rid of mold is challenging (even for the best contractors!) and expensive. Mold and mildew pose a threat to our health. Mold and mildew exposure causes inflammations, nasal congestion, and asthma. Water spillage may compromise structural integrity, pose a fire hazard, and cause slip and fall accidents.
Procrastinating can lead to a worsening of the situation. Once the roof starts leaking, you have to take immediate action.
Selling or trying to buy a home with a damaged roof can pose many unwanted delays in the process. In Central Texas, Buyers relying on a conventional mortgage from a bank cannot buy a leaky roof house. A traditional mortgage typically has “habitability requirements”. Banks and government agencies often decline to lend when the home needs a roof replacement. It is not “deemed” safe. DONT LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU.
