I have a question in regard to a house I sold in the state

I have a question in regard to a house I sold in the state of California 18 years ago. The house had a slab floor / foundation with plumbing routed under the slab. There was a leak in the hot water line somewhere under the slab. I was the only person aware of it and I did not disclose it. Some years later but more than 6 years ago I paid the buyers a visit and noted there were signs of a repair. The matter was not discussed. At this time I wish to disclose it to the buyers and reimburse them for what it cost them plus interest. What is my legal exposure in this matter?

My daughter and her husband have bought a new $90,000 mobile

My daughter and her husband have bought a new $90,000 mobile home and it is not what the owner of the company said. When you flush the toilet in the master bath, it came up into the bathtub. Light fixtures are not up, the back splash in the kitchen is crooked, when they washed clothes the first time the water didn't flow out, it flooded the utility room, ruining the flooring. The warranty man has been out numerous times but many problems still exist.The plumbers have been out 15 times! They moved into the trailer 11/4/16 and have made 1 payment. What can they do?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MississippiJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: No, they are young and don't know what to do or where to startJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: the owner has not been very cooperative, at this point I think they just want out.

Hi how are you today? This is a business situation.
