I am close to buying a house however this morning I received the sellers discloser. . . From what I understand, here's the story: The house and surrounding neighborhood was built in 1997. Sometime thereafter it was apparent that there was something wrong with the foundations of many houses in the area, which was traced back to improper soil compaction. The problem affected several different builders in the area and 15 homeowners went forth to sue their builders. It seems the the builders opted to buy back these houses. The house I'm buying, I believe, is one of these houses. The builder repaired the house then sold it to the current owners in 2002. They had a full structural inspection done which said the house was in good condition and structurally sound. The current owners said they are not aware of any current problems. The report indicates that the following repairs were made in 2002: - The perimeter foundation for the house was underpinned using screw piers - Perimeter and several intererior positions were replaced and/or reinforced with grade beams - Perimeter sidewalk with adequate slope was installed to direct water away from the house to prevent the soil under the house from getting too moist. The report says repairs were made "in response to differential settlement of the foundation". It also says "For all practical purposes, there has been little or no settlement or movement of the house, and it can be described as structurally sound." The structure is warrantied by the builder until 12/07. Now my questions. . . Are these repairs adequate? Are they a temporary fix or a permanent one? Should this be 10 huge red flags or is this not that big of a deal? There haven't been any problems in the last 1.5 years, does this indicate that the solution was effective or is there still a great chance of the foundation having more problems? I left a message for the structural engineer to perhaps discuss this matter further and am waiting for a response. In the meantime, I wanted to know what everyone here would say Thanks a bunch!
