I bought a house with a deck. I told it was up to code, but it is not and the city wants modifications (est $3,800) made. Do I have any right to sue the seller, or is it my problem?
Should I have to check with every single city department related to my house to find out about existing complaints on it before I buy it? Should the seller not have told me about a complaint filed on the property? Is that something that building inspector should check out?
