seller's? We purchased a home and 2 weeks before closing we got a report that water was leaking from the upstairs bathroom down into the washroom. Our home inspection had already occured and the home inspector didn't find any signs of a new leak although he did say he saw a dry discolored spot in the washroom indicating a leak from some point but he couldn't find a cause. The seller sent a contractor who determined the cause may be a bad toilet so the toilet was replaced.
I do a walk through before closing and there is indeed a new toilet and I check and can find no evidence of a leak so I proceed with the closing. After 2 weeks living in the house my wife notices that the light fixture in the washroom is filling up with water, so we test it and the water level is rising in the globe slowly so there is still a leak occuring in the house. After some investigation my guess is the drain in the master shower. Is the seller responsible for the leak since they never fixed it to begin with?
