Good Evening,My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.The news is not good. The saying buyer beware applies to buying a home as with everything else.The contract would have said that you have inspected the property and accepted it in its current state andcondition. If you do not do the inspections this is at your risk. If the Agent has mislead you then you can sue them but you need copies of the advertisements to show the misleading and deceptive conduct. What state are you in? Did you have a solicitor act for you on the purchase?
