Yes, we will be buying from the original owner.
The custom home builder, only provided one year bumper to bumper warranty on new homes and no extended structural warranty. There is nothing left for the seller to transfer over to the next buyer.
I find that vendors (other than the builder) will only sell structural warranties for new construction, not resale homes.
Not sure if this is the newest trend, but I am experiencing this a lot. This is the third home I have come across in the last two months with this issue.
Home warranties that cover appliances, plumbing, etc. are available but these do not cover the structure of the home.
Dilemma, dilemma, dilemma.
