Can I sue a realtor for false advertisement?I was in the process of buying a home and when we were doing the appraisal thru my bank, we found out that the home is in a flood plain and would require pricey flood insurance. The MLS listing from the agent specifically said "This house has been certified NOT in a flood plain and does not require flood insurance". After some digging, the seller and his realtor are saying that they proof they have that it is not in a flood plain is just an appraisal from a different bank. My bank has the FEMA certificate and I also got one on my own from the county where the property is located and they both show that the property is in fact in a flood plain. I am now out $700 that I paid for the inspection of the property and the appraisal on a property that I never would have pursued if they would not have falsely advertised that it was in a flood plain. To further complicate things, the seller has the house in a trust. So I am not sure if the trust, the seller, or the realtor are responsible. Can I sue for false advertisement? If so, who do I sue?June 11 2014 - Kankakee33YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
