Exclamation Water penetration? Broken chimney stucco at gutter

I am planning to buy a house in rainy Vancouver, BC, but found a potential problem.

The chimney stucco at the end of the gutter is broken, revealing the wood beneath:



The metal roof flashing appears to lead water into the wood beneath the stucco:



Water appears to have damaged the stucco immediately under the gutter:



How should this be repaired? What kind of cost would I be looking at?

Thank you!

P.S. Subject removal date is tomorrow...

The gutter has to be moved to make enough room to remove the loose stucco & patch what's needed. It's not that big of a job but my questions would be:

Where did the water go & did it do any other damage?
