Having recently sold my house with a pool I’ve now had the new owners come to
Me and say the pool has been leaking I agreed to go halves in having someone come and assess it. The results bring it has a crack somewhere on the outside but inside the pool area like from a tree or something. So now there trying to make me pay for pulling all the tiles up etc.
How does the law work for all this.
I thought that’s what they had inspectors for etc ?
Thank you for your question. I’m not a lawyer or real estate agent however from a personal perspective I’m not sure your under any obligation.
The onus is on the prospective buyers to do all their research and inspections prior to willingly exchanging contacts and the settlement of the property. Upon settlement, the property belongs to them. How long after the sale of the property did they make contact?
Given the circumstances, I’d suggest making contact with the conveyancer that helped you with the sale and get their advice.
I hope this helps.
