If your radon numbers come in high, they do have to put in the abatement system. We did for out buyers in NY, anyway.

Make sure they do it to your specifications -- but you may need to put in a bit of $$$ past the basic fee. Lots of companies run the line straight out of the basement and up the side of the house. A good contractor will charge a little more but run the line up the basement and along the inside garage wall so it comes out with just a little vent, not a huge pipe up the outside of the house. It is generally about $100-200 more to hide the pipes, but well worth it for curb appeal.

Good Luck and congrats!

Well the sale is off. The sellers were not willing to install the system because we were getting the house at such a steal (NOT!) so back to the drawing board.

it must not have been the house you were meant to have.

I was pretty sure that the sellers were required to correct the radon issues. (and all Class 3 inspection finds)
