I recently purchased a home. Even though everything seemed fine before the closing, I just went downstairs and found a flood 6 inches deep! The previous owners told me that there were no problems with the house, and my inspection report came back clean. The repairman told me that I have to spend several thousand dollars to fix the damage. Am I stuck with the bill? How can I get out of this mess?
Purchasing a home is one of the biggest investments most people make in their lifetime. It requires a lot of time and a lot of money to make it past the closing table. One of the worst feelings in the world is finding out that even more money is required to fix property damage just after moving into your new home. You might feel that you did everything right and researched the property as much as possible, but even the best researched homes can have hidden problems that don’t show up until you’ve already signed on the dotted line.
