You can negotiate with the seller that they have repairs made. Typically by contractors that they choose and you have your inspector re-inspect the property to verify the repairs have been made.
You can re-negotiate the sales price of the home and have the repairs made by contractors that you choose. In this instance you will need a repair estimate that provides a you with a cost break down of the repairs in your home inspection report.
You can walk away from the purchase. Make sure your purchase agreement contains a inspection contingency (also called a “due diligence contingency”) gives the buyer the right to have the home inspected within a specified time period. It protects the buyer, who can cancel the contract or negotiate repairs based on the findings of the home inspector.
