While making some repairs to my home couple weeks ago in preparation for putting it up for sale, my contractor cut through a pipe and either didn't realize what he'd done or didn't tell me which resulted in water damage to the crawl space. This was discovered yesterday when my home was being inspected by the buyer with whom I was under contract, and my contractor is refusing to take responsibility. The buyer pulled out and I am having to take my home off the market until the extent of the damage is determined and repairs are made. I have no idea how much this is going to cost but any help would be appreciated. I am moving across the country to Florida from Washington and already gave my notice at work. With the downturn in the housing market approaching, I'm afraid if I have to wait too long to re-list the house I'll lose the market.
