Can I sue an inspection company that did the inspection on my house that I bought 2 years ago and provided me with false information that now cost me money. Had I had the true answer or he said I do not know, I would have either not bought or ask for a reduction on the house.

Thank you for the post, I am happy to assist you by answering your questions. Yes, you can. The basis of your claim would be Breach of Contract, and in the alternative negligence. the breach of contract is based on the failure to perform the inspection per the contract, the negligence would be based on the inspection being performed in a substandard manner. Please let me know if you need additional guidance or have any follow up questions.
