Yep, looks like you'll have to have the work done on your own dime. If the sellers were still local, I'd advise taking them to Small Claims Court for reimbursement, but since they aren't, never mind. The sellers' agent isn't responsible for verifying all agreed-to repairs were made, so I'm not seeing any recourse against the agent, either.

This looks like one of those "life is unfair" pickles, where the other guy does something wrong, and you're left paying the consequences.

Luckily, gutter repairs aren't horribly expensive. I hope your pre-purchase inspection was thorough, and that there aren't any more surprises.
