Breaker Problems When House Inspected

We are looking to purchase an older home built in 1994. We had the inspection today and when the inspector used his little surge tool to test all the outlets, not one breaker flipped. The house has power and all seems normal otherwise. The seller doesn't have much money to make repairs, we only have 10 days to back out. Could this be something that is extremely expensive to repair? Or could it be a simple solution? We are requesting an electrician come and evaluate the issue.

Difficult to answer as there are many possibilities. Having an electrician check the house is your best plan.

Having an electrician come is by far your best solution to this problem. And a house built in 1994 should have no electrical problems unless someone without any electrical knowledge did some modifications since the house was built. I would be suspicious.
