Asked by John Crawley, 92833 • Mon Jan 11, 2010
I purchased a home in Fullerton, CA on 2/7/07. In negotiations, selling and buying agents agreed to pay 1K each toward closing costs. Later, during home inspection, a few minor issues were found and the bathtub overflowed. We had the homeowner make minor repairs, and the selling agent said they would use their 1K toward closing costs for needed plumbing repairs instead.
About 60 days later, after I moving into the home, the tub overflowed again. I called out a plumber and after a camera guided pipe snake inspection, was informed that the issue was due to tree roots breaking through the main sewage on the property by a property owned tree. He explained my options, including a price of $6500 for correction, and a few other more short term alternatives. I have since had the pipe snaked once a year to avoid sewage backup, and one neighbor informed me that the prior owner had to do the same.
What are the laws on disclosure of preexisting conditions and can anything be done?
