VA loan closing Jan 23rd.

Repairs required by VA appraiser/inspector:
--------------------------------------------------------------
1. ALL STEPS TO UPPER LEVEL AND STEPS TO THE BASEMENT NEEDS HANDRAILS...(ALL STEPS)..............

2. CARPORT OVERHANG AND GARAGE DOORS NEEDS PAINTING. .......... 

3. THERE ARE 2 BROKEN WINDOWS GARAGE DOORS THAT NEED TO BE REPLACED.........

4. THE HOT WATER HEATER NEED A POP OFF LEG....

-----------------------------------------------------------------

In the next 10 days the temperature is not supposed to go above freezing.  Pretty sure is not any alternatives to painting?

How much would a pop off leg cost on water heater?  the water heater is pretty old.  Was thinking just replace the whole water heater if I have to have someone come in and replace the pop off.

I would prefer not to go into the property to make the repairs until I own the property. I prefer to do the painting myself vs. paying a contractor.

Escrow at least some of these? but then I think I would have to have a contract give me a Firm Fixed price bid?

Input on how to handle this appreciated.

Doesn't seem like anything that should cost more than like $100 in materials and maybe half a day of work

@Jassem A. wouldn't think it would - but it's a VA inspector. not sure if they will let me escrow the repairs or not. And it's 11 degrees with -25 degree windchill predicted. Little challenging to paint in that weather.
