Asked by Wee, Concord, CA • Mon Jul 21, 2008
In Dec 2007, bought a fixer REO SFR. Sold as is with missing doors, kitchen cabinets, electrical and plumbing fixtures. Got a house inspector and found no major defects.
While fixing it, found that the clay main sewage line to the street is cracked by the trees. Cost me $6,000 to get a plumber to repait with permit and inspection. I also spent another $1,800 to get rid of the trees.
Called my broker to complain about it but he trys to indicate to me that he can't do anything and don't bother him since it is a done deal. All this occurs in Jan 2008.
July 2008, received a letter from the City, permit for a burst sewage line applied by the previous owner in Dec 2007 is expiring. This indicated that the REO had known about the problem and did not declare it to me. I would not have purchase the house or at least discounted the cost of repairs if I had known about it.
Q1:What can I do? Get a Lawyer; I want to be sure I will win before spending any more more.
