As for a grow house, that is probably not a condition that needs to be disclosed, but would depend on if there are lingering odors or other issues. If the seller knew of termite damage or black mold and did not disclose, you have a suit against the previous homeowner. If the standard real estate contract was used, the prevailing party would get their attorney fees. Most firms give free consultations, including my firm. Feel free to give me a call to discuss further.

I fully agree. In and of itself being a grow house is not a negative condition that would require disclosure. However, excessive water use in the basement as a corollary to a grow operation might be. The important question is whether the seller had reason to know there was a potentially negative condition that would impact a purchaser's decision, as well as whether you could have discovered the circumstances easily on your own (or through your inspector). I would be a little skeptical about termite damage, as this is very uncommon in Colorado. You should definitely consult with a lawyer.
