There's an existing scale from the previous owner. What happens if a scale doesn't pass inspection? Has this ever happened to anyone?
Unless you have a special case in your purchase agreement for such things, it would seem that you bought the scale, along with the rest of the assets of the mat, and in the process, you bought any problems it might have. If it fails inspection, you will have to have it repaired or replaced, no?

I once sold a laundromat (not the building - just the business) and I included the 2 swamp coolers in the deal just because I didn't want to be responsible for maintaining them. When Mr Buyer called and asked me to come take a look at a swamp cooler that wasn't working right, I reminded him that it was HIS swamp cooler but if he wanted to buy a Maintenance Contract on the swamp coolers; I could probably come up with something to accomodate him. He never called back.

Had a strict inspector comeby this week for our scale. The inspector said it could only be off by +1/-1 line. Mine was -2 lines, condemning our Chatillon scale. He made the whole inspection seem so criminal. Telling us its federal law and so fourth and illegal to use until repaired or replace.
Seriously can't these people see this is how we make a meager living and you want me to do what? Not accept WDF till my -2 line scale is repaired or buy a new $900+Chatillon?!
We can never win with the City. Can anyone recommend or know of any scale repair places in the metro area. Thanks for the help.
