06 Aug Agent in a sticky situation.
I'm the agent in question, and I am thinking of taking this listing for a couple who I've known for over a decade, and am friendly with socially. Once upon a time, they told me about how their basement flooded. So you can see where this is going… I am concerned because this was not listed on the disclosures. My broker just kind of doesn't care, but they did tell me about it. Everything inside looks fine, we've had mold tests, and the leak was because their irrigation system failed during our cold winters, and flooded the basement. So it is not necessarily a material defect, as all the materials were replaced.
I've never run into such a grey-area situation. WWYD?
