Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. You would sue them for the cost of repair and any other damages suffered, as a result. If there was an agreement to actually make these repairs and they failed to do so, only patching them to fool you and the inspector, then they would be in breach and essentially committing fraud and misrepresenting the condition of the home. You could go after them for 1) what it will cost to actually fix this and 2) any other damages or costs incurred, as a result of what they did. You can first make a demand, advising them of this and letting them know that you know what they did and if they fail to remedy and correct it, you will sue them,
