Hi Alexander,

Sorry to hear about your misfortune.

Best advise contact the attorney that helped you in the first place. If you didn't use an attorney (don't know why you wouldn't) contact a housing litigation attorney.

Good luck!

Too many questions to ask YOU in order to find out all the circumstances in your case. But at the end it
is a matter to discuss and explore with an experienced Real Estate Attorney which I hope you used before you purchased the property. The conditions and terms of said purchase contract will actually guide the legal issues that may arise out of the purchase.

Did you have an inspection, did you ask for whether there are any building code violations or not, was it a direct sale, or a foreclosure etc. etc. you can see too many different sets of circumstances with different legal outcomes and solutions.

Contact your or any good real estate attorney to figure it out for you.

Did you have a property inspection before you closed escrow? Here in California it is a must do for buyers.

If you feel info was with held knowingly, you should consult an attorney ASAP.

I hope you are not speaking of health and safety issues.

I wish you the very best!!!

A REALTOR cannot give legal advice unless they are a licensed attorney. My advice would be to contact an attorney to see what rights you do have.
