I'm sorry the house you wanted to buy didn't pan out. It's unrealistic, but sometimes I think someone selling the house should have to provide the inspection (done by an unbiased inspector) and make the results available. (Yeah... that'll happen... in my dreams.)
Do you have experience with fixing broken Commodore 64s, by any chance? Or broken joysticks? I have one broken C64 and one joystick that no will longer register the 'down' movement. I bought a new joystick, but it doesn't seem to work at all!
