comment Is my rapidly failing foundation dangerous?
Well, how do you "not address" natural but progressive settling? I mean, the repairs to the joists and the new steel beams were readily obvious. During the inspection process the need for tuckpointing came up and the buyer asked us to tuckpoint, which we declined to do. Instead, we offered a $1000 cash allowance for tuckpointing, which he accepted. The buyer was also presented with two separate professional engineers reports that documented and fully disclosed the settling issue. I think more than the issues being unaddressed, there comes a point where a 120+ y/o house is a risk. HTH!

@AlexFeinman -- No, nothing has changed and we've had no earthquakes, significant weather, road construction, neighbor construction, or any other issues. :/

I will definitely come back and update. I've put in a homeowners claim and was told we should hear from an adjuster tomorrow.

Thank you! My husband is calling the mortgage company to get the homeowners insurance information. Man, I don't even know who our insurance carrier is :/ I know we have coverage, as it's required for the mortgage. This is pretty frightening. I appreciate your reply :)
