I am very sorry to hear that. Yes I agree the seller should have known about this issue. However sometimes these title if you'd only come up when they are doing a title search and insurance policy. If they do not go to the sale then You could have a strong claim for breach of contract.
If you have any further questions just let me know, otherwise a positive rating of 5 stars would be greatly appreciated.
