In our purchase agreement we asked for investigation and repairs for issues found during the home inspection. One issue was low water pressure at some fixtures. At close of escrow the water pressure was improved and the agent informed us that sellers had installed a new tankless water heater during the escrow period to take care of the problem. After living in the house for a few weeks we began frequently noticing the strong the smell of gas and associated it with turning on of the heater. We called the gas company. They inspected the water heater and declared it an illegal installation and turned off gas supply to the unit. They said it was improperly vented. We had to buy and install a different model. The sellers are not responding to our calls or letters.
You may be able to. However, if the repairs were not adequate, then you should not have removed the inspection contingency.
This may bar you from pursuing any claims.
This is a small claims case because it is less than $10,000. Here is a legal guide that may help you: http://www.avvo.com/legal-guides/ugc/litigating-your-dispute-in-small-claims-court
