Yes, I can help you. You would file a claim against the seller of the house for $80,000 and you can also claim against the real estate agent.

You can file a complaint against the real estate agent for failure to disclose a material fact. Here is the link to complain to the real estate license board and they will make the agent pay your damages or give you a recovery from the state fund for matters like this.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
