Before visiting a property seller sent C.A.R. TDS form via email that stated that "guest house was remodeled without permits". Since guest house was advertised as part of property and included in legal living area then buyer assumed that it was built with permits, but merely just remodeled without permits.
Then buyer made offer that seller accepted. Buyer removed all contingencies.
However, after inspection contingency was removed the seller sent to buyer a new and updated C.A.R. TDS form that clearly states "guesthouse was remodeled and built without permits".
- Can buyer back out from purchase as he is getting different property than seller advertised (less bedrooms and legal living square footage)?
- Was it buyer's responsibility during one of the contingencies to find out about unpermitted work?
