Hello. My husband and I purchased a HUD
home in Nov 2014. There were very few disclosures. One ommission was that the well had a crack and was leaking. This had been dealt with by the homeowner
by installing a french drain across the yard, emptying into the ditch. Our neighbor
to the South has long protested that this keeps him from mowing his ditch, because the water is at times considerable. He just filled his part of the ditch with a clay barrier, causing water to back up onto our yard, and necessitating a close look at the well. Where do my husband and I stand on making a claim to HUD?
JA: Will you both be jointly liable for the mortgage
Customer: The mortgage is in my husband's name
JA: Where is the property located?
Customer: Shakopee, MN. An area full of natural artesian springs. That is what we thought we had.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I think that is all for now.
