Leaky Tub Cost?
Hi Everyone,
I'm a new member here looking for some advise before purchasing my first home. Yesterday I had a home inspection done on a home I'm planning on buying. The home inspector filled up one of the bathroom tubs with water, then let it drain. We walked a way for a few mins and come back to realize the entire bathroom floor is cover with water from the tub. This house is what you would call a "fix-it-upper" and I was already planning on ripping out this bathroom once we move in so it's not quiet worth having the seller fix however I would like to get the cost of this repair from the seller. The inspector said it had a "broken drain" and the tub would need to come out to repair. My question is how much would a job like this cost? I'm trying to get an estimate which I can go back to the seller with and ask to be taken off of the home price. Any advice would be great.

You won't know until the source of the leak is found.

In most cases a leaking tub drain does not require removal of the tub...

Slab houses may be an exception to this.
