failure to disclcose a citationHow much weight to failure to disclosure have? We bought a property to be used as a rental. Seller also was going to use it for a rental but was denied and cited for not having egress windows (the windows were all brand new but seller did not obtain a permit so they were not legal in the bedrooms) she and agent knew this fact and also had a written citation from the building inspection. On the citation it indicated "If Seller has a buyer the buyer must be informed of these citations" One month later she sold the home to use and did not disclose. When we tried to obtain a renters license we were told the windows had to be egress. We ripped out the new windows in bedrooms and put in egress for $2500. We informed seller and agent (who acted as a dual agency) but the realtor said take us to court we are not paying. we believe she just wanted to get the full commission. Even though we waived the inspection the the problems cited would not have come up - this was clearly failure to disclose which was written. The real estate company told the seller "We will not settle - we would rather go to court otherwise everyone will start suing us if they knew that we settle" What recourse do we have - Conciliation Court?February 09 2013 - Isle00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
