Asked by Veronica Davis, Pittsburgh, PA • Wed Mar 25, 2009
My husband and I moved into our new home last March of 2008. About a month later a neighbor informed us that the roof had collapsed back in 2003 but this information was never on the home discloser. We then started having the roof leak in our dining room and master bath. Before we purchased the home we had asked the previous home owner about the roof and she said that she never had any problems - obviously a lie. Unfortunatly, we did not get a home inspection. Now, we need a new roof - this will probably cost us over $25,000.00. Do we have a case since the previous owner obviously failed to put on the discloser that the roof collapsed 5 years earlier? We are ready to take her to court over this. If we would have known the roof collapsed we would have had a home inspection and either fought to have her lower the price or moved on to the next house.
