Is previous owner responsible for repair cost if they knew about an issue and did not disclose it?We just purchased our first home a few months ago. The seller disclosed the house had foundation work about 15 years ago that included a 20-year warranty. When we were in the process of buying the house, our inspector confirmed the work but didn't make us aware of any additional issues. He noted that cracks in the wall were due to normal settling and very common in a house that is almost 100 years old. In the Sellers Disclosure, it was noted there was foundation repair done and that it was still under warranty, but did not mention the additional work needed that wasn't covered. Also the seller checked that they were unaware of any wood rot.What should we do? We obviously need to do the repairs, only a few things the company can do are under warranty. The rest of the work to correct the problem from recurring, we would have to pay for. I don't feel that we should have to pay for it, especially when the previous owner knew about the problems, was quoted by the company to fix them, but decided not to. Is there any way the previous owner should be responsible for paying for those repairs? If so, how would we go about getting that resolved?
