Customer Question

MY son just closed on a house in Bow Nh on Thursday. They moved in Sunday. They had a problem with the lack of water yesterday so they called a "well" man. He came out and told them they needed a new well (12,000 dollars) and the yard ( newly landscaped) would have to be all dug up. Do they have any recourse with the contractor or the house inspector?

They do indeed have a claim based on breach of contract. They were retained for this very reason and failed to confirm and notify of the problem. If seller made any misrepresentations or warranties, he may look to seller for contribution too. Having a lawyer pursue all three on contingency may make sense and prompt settlement. martindale.com is a good resource. Kindly let me know if acceptable.
