Your Buyer Agent should be guiding you through the purchase, if you purchased without an agent, it is then up to you to complete your due diligence of inspecting the home with your eyes before making an offer and then making your offer contingent upon a full inspection. Many times the Listing Agent may not even know of any problems unless the seller told them which most do not. Again it is your agent which should be looking for these red flags. And again if you purchase without your own agent, you must look for them and not just take peoples word.

AMY,
How is that possible?
The real estate professional you hired guided you through your due diligence process that would have clearly revealed EVERYTHING you needed to know including where you needed to do more investigation.

There simply must be something missing from the story you are wanting to tell.
Are you aware that real estate professionals offer infiormation provided by the owner. Professional do not create or fabricate this data. They relay what the owner shares.

So, what has gone wrong that you are wanting to blame on someone else?

I'm sorry you feel you were mislead!

In the future, it is ALWAYS important to do your own "Due Diligence". Laws vary in different parts of the country, but many times, there are things that sellers MUST disclose, and there are things that they don't. The things that they don't need to disclose are the things that you should look to find in a good home inspection (By a good home inspector). There are also things that the seller and agent may not KNOW about. Sellers don't get home inspections before selling their property. They just want to move it in whatever condition is acceptable to a buyer.

CAVEAT EMPTOR! Buyer beware!

How do you know the Realtor knew anything that needed disclosing, they don't live in the house and know its every fault? You provide no details for your accusation. Get a lawyer and see what they tell you.
The first thing they will ask you is if you had a home inspection..... so did you?
