I have a contract signed for a 4 family home and it turns out that none of the kitchen sinks are vented... When you run water for awhile and fill up the kitchen sinks and then release the water a gurgling sound is heard like it is sucking for air.
Are there any dangers to not venting and more importantly, short of breaking throught he walls to install a venting system is there anything else that can be done to cure this issue??
I have included "fix non vented kitchen sinks" on my home inspection report to sellers attorney. But realistically I doubt very much he will break through the walls and poke through the roof w/ a venting system due to costs and labor so I am hoping there is an easier method to doing this??
Lastly if sellers refuse to fix anything do you guys think thsi should be a deal breaker??
thanks in advance,
