Purchase of condemned homesI bought a condemned home from the city, and now I am stuck with it. The city didn't tell me that the house was condemned,nor did they tell me that it was going to be demolished. I went to the city to request from them to take the house back because it is unrepairable and unlivable, (the house is only 860sq ft.) but the city refused, they said it is my house and my responsibility. I ask if anyone can give me some advice in what to do, I can't afford an attorney and I don't know what my legal rights are. The city says I agreed to purchase the house "AS IS" I didn't know the house was condemned and the city was going to demolish it but now that I purchased the house it is my responsibility.October 08 2011 - Lackawanna00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
