Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

You would have the ability to sue if the seller intentionally or negligently failed to disclose known material facts or property conditions. The more unlikely it i that you could have discovered this on your own prior to sale, the more likely it is that you could have a viable claim.

Also, if you had the house inspected, and the inspection doesn't disclose the problems, it may be that you have the right to sue the inspector as well.

Thus, you should consider hiring a lawyer in your area to write demand letters to the seller and inspector, and if you can't resolve this, proceed to filing suit against them both.
