I'm considering buying a house which is about 5 years old. For the most part everything seems to be in good condition.
The two exceptions seem to be the poured concrete garage floor, which has a few massive cracks, and a storage room below the garage with smaller cracks on the walls. The house is on a slope so the garage is supported at the ground level on the one side and then extends across and over the storage room on the other side.
The owners claim that an engineer inspected the cracks soon after the house was built (as they were already present), and found that they were caused by the settling of the house. I have asked for the formal report, but would like your opinion as well.
Do these cracks look benign? The garage floor cracks are especially worrisome.
