Asked by Mike, 19702 • Sat Sep 26, 2009
I closed on a townhome in Delaware this week. The home inspection came back with a few items which were addressed. After the settlement closing while cleaning up the bathroom, I lifted the bathtub mat (which had been left) to clean the tub. When I lifted it, along with it came a large piece of sealant which had been covering a 6 inch crack in the plastic floor of the tub. The crack appears to have been patched several times to no avail. After removing the old carpet in the adjoining bedroom, water staining was evident coming from the bathroom. Do I have any recourse as this tub damage seems to have been intentionally hidden by the rubber shower mat the entire time. I feel this is something that should have been disclosed by the sellers and that they were downright deceitful. Neither myself nor my realtor nor my home inspector thought to check under the mat. The tub obviously needs replaced now and possible water damage may be revealed under it. What recourse do I have at this point?
