Hi There! Trying to buy a house and this appears to be a deal killer, are there "simple" solutions? Should this be considered a deal killer? Chimney does not meet 2/10 rule No Spark arrestor/rain cap. The Chimney is used with a wood stove. Wood stove pipe plugs directly into chimney and there are no other visible openings into the chimney from inside of the house. I do not want a house with a chimney that cannot be used. Are there present fire hazards beyond the noted possible vent issues? Anything I should ask the current owner (who also built the house?) House is located in the Tennessee River Valley.
