After a home inspection, what kind of reduction is a buyer entitled to?

Question Details:

There are no defects on the condition report only recommendations. The buyer wants me to reduce the price another $14,000 due to items she feels will need to be done. Can she legally get out of the contract? The roof has 2 to 3 years left and there are no leaks, the furnace is old but there are no defects, city water is coming but she signed the condition report noting this fact, the stove is being thrown in but she wants it replaced, the basement laundry tub has a small leak but is a minor repair and she wants it replaced. All items total $23,260 according to her. What is legal?
