Canadian Real Estate/who's responsible?


We purchased a house with a pool. We signed papers etc before winter and have the final exchange to do when the seller moves out in May. The pool liner broke over the winter. The seller says its not her responsibility to pay to have it fixed, it is ours. Is this true?
Thanks for your help.

Hello Hannah,
Thank you for your question. I would suggest that you contact your Realtor that negotiated the contract on your behalf for clarification as it depends on how the Agreement of Purchase and Sale has been drawn up. If you bought privately then I would check with your Lawyer who reviewed the Agreement of Purchase and Sale.
