I was a total goober & didn’t get a lake house inspection, i just obtained our lake house from a local guy I knew our whole life.
I figured he wouldn’t screw me over, then when he said the electric, plumbing & HVAC all were good, I figured he was telling the truth.
I figured I was getting a fantastic deal for the lake house since I considered him an honorableman. I have found that people turn into a bizarre creature when it comes to money. I overpaid for the lake house & I got screwed on everything inside, then the seller took the washer, dryer & all the light fixtures, but he also left a ton of garbage & furniture he didn’t want. What genuinely stinks is the lake house is not in that great of condition. The wiring frequently trips & I am in the dark. The water pressure in the shower & faucets is just pitiful. The worst is that I believe I am going to need a brand new HVAC system. I saw a sticker on the side of the HVAC device that said it was over 15 years old. I also saw the last service it was given was over 5 years ago. The HVAC machine makes genuinely unhappy noises when I turn it on & off. If the furnace is on, it smells like burning hair in the entire house. The A/C genuinely just feels like slightly hot air blowing around the house. I am a little afraid to call a HVAC dealer. I am thinking I am going to have either a hefty HVAC repair bill or need a whole new HVAC device.
