Purchased home 10 months ago. Entire kitchen floor is damaged: leaking dishwasher and extensive mold through cabinets and drywall. Inspection found crawl space standing water (sellers fixed) but noted nothing in kitchen, only bath baseboard needed...
Without reviewing your agreement with your inspector, and the Form 17 disclosure, it is difficult to assess the potential exposure of the seller or the inspector. Inspectors' agreements often include a clause limiting liability to the amount you paid for the inspection report. With regard to the seller, you will need to obtain evidence that they knew of the underlying damage. Finally, with regard to the lender, I know of no reason why the lender would be liable here.See question

You may have a claim based on the representations made by your builder and the conditions at your home. You will need to have an attorney review your documents, and perhaps have an expert view the conditions at your home and yard with regard to the drainage issues.See question
time we found out, the one we thought we had made an offer on had sold--options???
This does sound like an error by your RE agent that creates a claim for you. The question is, what are your damages? You will need to look at the value (and price) of the house you ended up buying versus the house you did not get, as well as other aspects of your situation that are different than what you had anticipated based on having purchased the wrong home.See question
As a condition of my divorce agreement my ex-husband paid me 60,000 for my share of our property and I signed a "quit claim". Now my ex wants to sell the property (condo) and I have received a letter from his attorney informing me that if I do not...
To answer your last question first, it seems unlikely that you have a claim for compensation due to stress from this incident. You mention "other incidents" but don't specify any details, so it is impossible to say whether there has been any action by your husband that would consitute the negligent infliction of emotional distress or give rise to a similar claim. As for the satisfaction of lien, without knowing the nature or timing of the lien that your ex-husband's counsel is now seeking you to acknowledge as "satisfied," it is likewise difficult to provide you with any real direction. It seems to me you should consult with a lawyer. You may even have a bargaining position to consider with regard to the demand that you sign that document.See question
I hired a tree service to remove a 2 trees on my property and prune 3 other mature trees. The service contract clearly identifies the trees to be removed, and the trees to be pruned. However, they removed all 5 trees. A consulting arboris...
Assuming your arborist's evaluation of the destroyed trees is accurate, you do appear to have a valid claim for just under $10,000. To pursue the bond and liability insurance, you would typically need to file a lawsuit in Superior Court. However, sometimes we are able to work directly with the contractor's liability insurer to procure a payment for our clients in such circumstances.See question
what is the best thing to do? and if my husband own 30,000 in the hospital bill now in the collection what gonna happen to my property
Your homeowners insurance company, under a typical policy, is obligated to either pay you to rebuild the house (up to the insured dwelling value as stated on your policy's Declarations page) or pay you the "ACV" (actual cash value) of the property at the time of the loss. ACV takes depreciation into account, so it will be a lower amount than the rebuilding costs. However, you only get the rebuilding costs if you actually rebuild. The answer to your question depends on whether you have a mortgage on the property, the amount of that mortgage relative to the property value (including the value if the house is rebuilt), your available alternative living arrangements, and your other debts and income. So, I suggest you contact an attorney to help you plan a sensible strategy given your options under the policy and the medical bills you mention. Time may be of the essence, as insurance policies typically have a stated limitations period for pursuing actions against the insurer.See question

The applicable statute of limitations for such claims is typically six years. However, some manufacturers of roofing and other materials to provide separate, material-only warranties that extend up to 30 and even 50 years. You may want to check with the inspector, or hire a structural engineer, to get information on exactly which components have failed. This could help you determine whether there is any applicable warranty that you might rely on for a remedy. But if the problems are caused by workmanship, I think the statutory limitations period has long since expired on any claims against a builder or designer. Good luck to you.See question
