Can you sue the seller of a house who doesn’t tell you that something horrible happened there before you bought it?
While state laws differ, in general home sellers must disclose to potential buyers known physical defects like a basement that floods or the presence of lead paint but things like a murder that happened in the house don’t have to be revealed.
When you buy a condo or buy into a development, you think you’re free to decorate your place as you choose – but you’re not.
It is an interesting real estate phenomenon emerging. Buyers are cruising legal notices and looking for couples divorcing so they can swoop in and make an offer on their house.
