Asked by Nettmel, Myrtle Beach, SC • Thu May 9, 2013
The buyers did a final walk through on the day of closing and the nosy neighbor came out to talk to them. They had questioned the standing water underneath the porch and the neighbor said that it "had been a problem throughout the development and the city wouldn't do anything about it". In turn, the buyers had a contractor come that day. The contractor said that it "would be very costly to investigate why there was standing water and to not buy the house". I am of course going to pay to see what is causing this as it was not disclosed to my mother, now deceased, upon buying the house and having an inspection done three years ago. The buyers had a home inspection done and it was not mentioned. What recourse do I now have against the neighbor? Now that he has opened this can of worms, how can I make sure that he now has to disclose that his property has this problem as well as all the others in the development?
