Buyer who ignored inspection results has little chance of winning lawsuit
Sep 23, 2016 6:00 AM - Q. I agreed to purchase a house in June. The report prepared by the inspector noted there were water stains on the ceiling above the kitchen, but I closed on the deal anyway. It recently rained very hard, and water leaked from the ceiling and damaged the floor. Can I sue the seller or either of the agents for failing to tell me about the problem? A. You could sue, but you probably would not win.
