Good question!! I would like to know if I have a civil case against the previous owner as he lied to us, had we known about the previous flood issue, we would have never purchased the property.
Ideally I would like to get my money back, but realistically I would like some financial compensation for the stress, lies and the fact that the value of the house will be lowered considerably, plus insurance will go up
We have recently found out from neighbours that the house had flooded before and over several years and the previous owner got the house cheaper due to this.
My partner and I are both in the Army so have accommodation, we were in no rush to buy but fell in love with this property. I was also pregnant at the time of purchase and would have definitely not have gone through with the purchase if I had known any history of flooding, but how can I prove that?
Thank you, yes that is my feeling on it, had a terrible Christmas, suffered a miscarriage and now being accused of fraud because he blatantly lied.
Thank you for your advice, will persue it simply so he doesn't get away with it.
