Problems: Last year on March, I purchased a house in Houston. In this initial year, I have found two major items in the house which should have been disclosed by the seller or found through the inspection of the property done prior to closing. I have pictures and documented information for the repairs. The two items are as follow: (1) rotten roof beams discovered when hurricane IKE hit the roof (2) the A/C unit is a mismatched of R22 and 410 components. Now to have it repair no certified technician will risk his license and I am now in position of having to replace the full unit. Are items like this considered fraud?
They might be if you have some reason to believe the seller knew of the rotting roof beams or the a/c issue. If you had a home inspection, the roof beams would probably be discoverable. As for the a/c, I don?t know what is involved other than the sign of repairs being done which could be anything. How long did the seller own the house? Were repairs done on the a/c while they owned it? Also, is it possible that the seller was guided by their agent to fill out the Sellers? Disclosure Notice? If you can send me the Sellers? Disclosure Notice, the Earnest Money Contract, the HUD-1 Settlement statement, photos of the problems, and any estimates or repairs of the a/c, I can evaluate better for you.
