I have read the posts and understand the legalities of the home but this was an in family Purchase and My wife and I knew of the foundation and purchased the home as is. My father inlaw told me that the foundation is still sound and was inspected recently before we purchased. The issue i have is we cannot afford another loan or refinance the home to higher out for repairs. I know there's ways of doing this project safely and affordable. Im certain i can cut those quote cost in half by doing it my self and with a few close friends, oh and of course there payments cost only for a few cases and a good bbq dinner.
