Without Legal Warranty

I recently purchased a home in Quebec, Ont that was “sold without any legal warranty” as the daughter was selling it as her parents have passed away. The home hasn’t been lived in since March 2021.

We had a home inspection completed on May 24th which indicated that the AC was working perfectly and keeping the house at 20C.

We moved in on July 6th and turned on the AC unit that evening once all our belongings were in the house. We noticed that with the AC unit on that the house was getting warmer and warmer. I didn’t think anything could be done as we bought the house without legal warranty so I went ahead and booked a technician to come in and take a look at it. While talking with my realtor a few days later, she indicated that all the appliances should be working at the time we move in and advised me to contact the sellers.

In an e-mail, she indicated that she was having “difficulties with the heat pump at the end of May. Following advice, my sister changed the insulation and the heat pump worked again. It may be that this adjustment was not enough. ” She contacted someone to come over a few days later and they added more Freon into the AC unit but that only lasted a few hours.

We received a quote for a whole new machine as the problem is not repairable. The sellers are only willing to pay 25% ($1,500) of the quote because “the condition of the heat pump was at the end of its life and your inspector told you that it could break at any time. You will have a new unit. ” and “My realtor finds my offer very generous in the context of the sale. So that’s the final offer.

Now, I signed the promise to purchase the property which indicated that:
– the AC Unit “which are sold without any legal warranty of quality, at the buyer’s own risk, but must be in working order at the time of delivery of the property.”

And as per the home inspection report:
– “air conditioning units and heat pumps, just like any other mechanical apparatus, can break down at any time” and “note that the inspector does not provide an estimate of remaining life on heating or cooling system components.”

I am hoping to be compensated for at least half of the cost to fix the AC unit which is $3,000 since she went against our promise to purchase agreement. Do you think I should try to fight this or just be happy that she is willing to give me something? Any insight would be helpful!
