We've been looking at houses
for several months now. We found one that was possibly THE house
for us. We asked the Realtor to find out how old the roof was
and how many layers of shingles were up there. Looked like maybe
three layers. The Realtor got back with us the next day. He
explained: "The home owners are elderly and they don't
remember how old the roof is."
He couldn't even give us a rough estimate, like within 5 yrs!
Couldn't remember how many layers of shingles, either! No, they
didn't fill out the discloser statement. They started to, but,
he explained, "got overwhelmed."
Maybe this isn't the house for us after all.
