My apologies, yes the purchase has completed.
Our lawyer did a title search.
The lot size was indicated and is shown correctly. Obviously we did not measure it out to verify.
Our agent hasn't had much to say. Both agents work for the same office. We brought our agent in on the sale and to list ours after we had already viewed the property with the seller's agent who had the opportunity to disclose what she knew, but did not.
The added costs include approximately $5000 - $6000 in costs for the County, survey and legal. Then about $2000 for the actual purchase price from the neighbour.
I guess the basic question is, as a buyer can you sue the seller's real estate agent for non disclosure of something they had knowledge of, which would have had an effect on our decision to purchase the property.
So with that said, our chances in small claims court would be minimal at best?
Wow, so a seller can disclose everything and anything to their agent and the agent doesn't have to pass it along and there is nothing you can do about it?
So, even though the agent has admitted to everybody she knew about it and still didn't disclose it, that doesn't help us?
I appreciate your time and answers even if they weren't exactly what I was hoping for. Much appreciated. Mike
