Question: Who is liable for bad repairs after a house is sold?
It depends on the specific details of the sale contract, but in general when a house (or used car) is sold the new owner is responsible for all repairs.
If the house was sold under false pretenses (for example, if the buyer specifically asked if the roof needed repairs and the seller said it did not) then there might be room for legal action against the seller.
It is usual when buying a house to pay for a professional inspector to inspect the house and determine what repairs are needed. The cost of these repairs may then get deducted from the price of the house during negotiations. This is not a legal requirement, however.
