Asked by pg, Warren, NJ • Thu Aug 2, 2012
We made an offer on a house in NJ, which got accepted. Then we went for Inspection and found lot of issues here and thr some of them being - utility appliances never been serviced in 14 yrs, leakages here and thr etc. The biggest issue being that of Pest Infestation. We saw signs of rodent activity and droppings all over the place, rodents also ripped off insulation in the basement / crawlspaces. Now this was never disclosed in the Seller's Disclosure (point where it asks if Seller is aware of any Pest Issues). We went back to our attorney and requested her if we can cancel the contract based on 'misrepresentation' in the seller's disclosure. Now the Seller and their attorney is making it difficult for us to get out of the contract saying pest is a minor issue and they cannot accept cancellation of contract on that basis.
Is there a way our Attorney can get us out of this contract? Coz we really don't want to get into a house with pest issues with a new baby coming into the family...
