Thankfully we just had the entire exterior of the house re-done a couple years ago after the tornado, so we won't have to worry about roof repairs (réparation toiture montréal if you speak French), and the buyers shouldn't have to worry for a good long time. Same with the siding, garage door, windows, etc. And, really, we just replaced the water heater a few years before that, so it shouldn't have been an issue. Once it's fixed, though, they shouldn't have to worry about that for a while either.
For anyone who does need roof repairs (in Montreal) be sure to check out these guys for montréal couvreur. They've got over 25 years experience, so I bet they know what they're doing, and they'll do it right in the first place - saving you money in the long run.
Moral of the story: Just because somebody says he's a professional and says he knows what he is doing, always do your own research. According to the home inspector, a water heater must be installed by a licensed plumber - not just some guy who does construction or remodeling. He may be a licensed contractor, but that does not make him a plumber.
