I sold property in Idaho in 2009. Buyer is now coming back

Customer Question

I sold property in Idaho in 2009. Buyer is now coming back to say I didn't represent the access to power correctly and she had to pay more than she thought to install the service. What is the statute of limitation for the buyer to address this issue with the seller?
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Idaho
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: she is seeing me and real estate agent in small claims court
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: in sales info we did say that the power was at the street and the plat of the land which she should have looked at in her due diligence time notated that the utilities were to go underground (she says she didn't know that she'd have to take power further because closest power option was not designed to support underground cabling.)

Hello. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.

The statute of limitations for a breach of contract action is 5 years. So, the claim is not timely and it is doubtful that she could prevail.
