Does anyone have legal advice about a house sale and inspection issues?


house sale

Upon sale of my house, we agreed to have flashing fixed on the roof because of an inspection flaw. We had it fixed by a neighbor who’s a roofer, and submiited the receipt of work that was done to the realtor. Now a year after the sale, they contacted their lawyer with threats to sue us for $6000 because they are not happy with the work done. We had did what was asked us, hired a competent roofer and and had no idea “they weren’t happy”. Are we still liable?
They forwarded us a long list of repairs, way beyond anything presented to us before the sale of the house. We can’t afford to hire a lawyer, let alone pay $6000. Thank you so much for your help.
