Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation.
If there are serious defects with the property that you have just with the property that you have just become aware of, there is a six-year statute of limitations in Massachusetts for filing a breach-of-contract action. So if the seller was negligent in upgrading the was negligent in upgrading the property or performing repairs you can hold them liable for the cost of making repairs now to put the property into workman like condition.
However, the limit for small claims court in Massachusetts is only $7,000 so you would need to hire an attorney and sue in a higher court if you wanted to recover all your damages.
