Jc,

Curious as to why no one seems to have answered your question yet? Lots of liability in any responses. That said, there are a number of questions you have to ask yourself before attempting to go after someone.

1. First and foremost, is the previous damage significant enough to warrant the expense of suing someone, let alone the headache and time sink.
2. Do you think it's easy for a third party to discern that previous damage existed that was not disclosed?
3. Do you think that third party can determine when the damage occured, such that it can be attributed to a specific owner?

There's not enough detail in your question to really answer it. For example, was the previous owner the only owner of the home? If so, then question #3 above is a moot issue.

If you have more info, let me know. But you might not get a lot of answers simply because lots of people in real estate don't want to have to deal with this issue.

Best of luck,

Jeffrey
