After purchasing a unit in a brownstone newly transformed into an apartment building, a homeowner has discovered a problem and isn’t sure how to get the sponsor to fix the issue.
Plumbers discovered that there is no access to the water heater shut-off valve as a stacked washer and dryer blocks the way. The sponsor claims that it passed inspection and therefore they aren’t responsible. The owner suspects that the stacked units weren’t in place at the time of inspection. Is it worth the effort to get the sponsor to resolve the problem?
Please chime in with your advice.
