The answer to all of these questions is: Maybe. Without knowing the particulars of your case it is impossible to determine if someone is at fault for selling you a defective home. However, as experienced Virginia Beach real estate lawyers, we can say that if you are at all suspicious that someone misled you in the purchase of your home, you have the right to speak with an attorney.
Knowing Your Rights as a Home BuyerThere are several legal options for those who have bought a home, only to discover that the house has major flaws or defects. Some of the more serious of these flaws and defects include:
- Infestation of termites
- Extensive water damage
- Structural damage
- Faulty foundation
- Gas leaks
- Dangerous fireplace
- Faulty siding or roofing
We could go on and on, listing the types of dangerous, undisclosed problems we have seen. However, what matters is this: if the seller of your home intentionally tried to hide serious damage or flaws in the house, there is a chance he or she can be held liable. An experienced Virginia residential law attorney can hold the seller accountable for your defective Virginia home. A successful lawsuit or settlement means that you can get money you need to pay for repairing the damages to your home.
