Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.

.

1. Did you have an opportunity to inspect the property prior to purchasing?

.

2. If your home inspector notified you about the problems, why did you close on the property without addressing them?

.

3. Or did the seller refuse to make any repairs?

.

4. Did the seller refuse to fill out a "Seller's Disclosure of Property Condition"?

.

5. What is your legal question I can help with tonight?
