I bought this 100 year old house 2 years ago. In the buyers contract it says the basement was finished 1 month before it was listed for sale. I had water in the basement and uncovered a wall that 2 specialists said would be to be replaced 20k+. It was covered in sheetrock and hidden. Nothing listed in the disclosure form, no checks for foundation issues. Do I have a case that I can go after the seller?
Yes if you can prove the defect in the house exists and was not disclosed. These matters take witnesses to prove up the claims. Sometimes proving it up is the biggest challenge.
It is likely, but as the first attorney stated, they can be difficult to prove. I know attorneys that specialize in these cases (usually mold). I would consult an attorney to get more information.
