Buying a home with removed solar panels?

Hello, we are currently in escrow on a home that has a lien for solar panels. We were told by the seller’s agent that they couldn’t get anyone to take over the solar lease, so the seller decided to take off the panels and have it brought with them to their new home. They’ve “repaired” the roof after removing the solar but they’ve yet to show us any receipt of the repairs. They also left the solar brackets on the roof so that it will be ready and easy to install for the next home owners.

When we had the roof inspections done, we found out that all of those holes made on the roof meant that parts of the roof will need to be replaced and it will run about $14k. Oh, and we also found out that those solar brackets aren’t reusable???

We’ve asked them to repair the roof, and are waiting for a reply. Is this a typical scenario? If they refuse to repair the roof, is it possible to at least reuse the holes they created for new solar panels? I’m hoping to salvage the situation because of money and time lost, but should we just walk?
