Canadian Real Estate/Listing

Question
Hi, we bought a house that had 'wood burning fireplace' in the listing.  After having a WETT inspection, we have been told that it need to be totally rebuilt.  Do we have any recourse??

Answer
Hi Paul,
 Unfortunately you don't have any recourse! Many fireplaces require tuck pointing and other repairs and or cleaning. If you had made the Offer Conditional Upon A Successful Home Inspection you could have asked for an Abatement on the price or asked the Seller to repair it?
Good luck!
