Your ability to proceed with a claim against the seller will be based upon the facts and the documents relate thereto.
Under California law a warranty may be disclaimed by using specific language in the transaction. Civil Code section 1792.5. Every sale of goods that are governed by the provisions of this chapter, on an "as is" or "with all faults" basis, made in compliance with the provisions of this chapter, shall constitute a waiver by the buyer of the implied warranty of...
Liability will be the issue. Establishing that the property owner knew of the existence of the purported hazard and allowed it to exist on his property will be difficult, at best. As to the car owner, having "exposed metal" on a parked vehicle does not appear sufficient to establish liability to a passing pedestrian.
It is not clear from your facts as to what is at issue. A demand to "comply with the R&R's" is rather broad. While the response may have been untimely, it may be prudent to set a meet & confer so as to clarify the issues. What are your goals? What is to be gained from going immediately to formal ADR?

Attorney Chen has provided you with a very thorough answer. You should document the situation with information as to the names of the contractors and take some photographs.

In California, the DMV will issue a letter of non-compliance and mail it to your last known address. If you fail to correct the matter a "bench warrant" will issue. If you are stopped for any reason by the police, a background check will show you have an outstanding warrant. The odds of you being taken in to custody increase, dramatically. The renewal of your license could also be impacted.
I would encourage you to contact the DMV and correct the report ASAP.
