We have a property that is under contract but with a simple contingency.
It's not a financing contingency, it's not a home inspection contingency, it's not a termite contingency, it's not a radon contingency, it's not a condo or HOA contingency, it's not a well/septic contingency, it's not an environmental contingency, it's not an it's not an appraisal contingency and it's not a sale of another property contingency.
It is contingent on having gas cooking available in the property. Sounds simple?
Just called BGE, for this contract..and you have your answer. NOT. The utility company told me there is gas available at the address.
But, you can not bring a gas line inside until you have a gas appliance to install.
So we've been told there is natural gas at the property, but we have not been able to find out the cost of bringing the gas line in and the installation of a gas stove.
And that's the contingency.
Here are some of the people who have already been contacted:
-The condo association states there are gas meters at a few of the townhomes.
-Baltimore Gas and Electric verified that gas is available but could not give other info.
-The appliance dealer but they only install the appliance.
-The plumber...who would run the gas line after the hook up by BGE.
Someone to pull the permits.
Sounds like a lot of coordination to switch a new electric stove to a new gas stove.
Sounds pretty simple!
This gas stove is the buyer's only contingency before moving forward.
And since this is the single contingency holding up this contract, we plan to have the answer within 24 hours.
Does anyone have a better, correct and safe way to get this buyer a gas stove?
