I have rented an apartment from a licensed real estate company for 5 yrs now. I recently learned it was illegally constructed by the real estate company and I turned them into the city after they begged me not to. It was a single family home converted into a duplex. There is no fire wall plus several other things that are hazardous. Since I am forced to move now and it has disrupted my life, do I have a possible lawsuit against the real estate company that built it? They have been lying to me for 5 yrs about everything being built to code. No permits or codes from the city were used in the construction and now the unit is being investigated by the city. They did this knowingly and with no regard for my safety. They just took my money.
