This is a friend of a friend situation.
Home purchaser decides he’d like to make an offer on a house, but wants an inspection first. Inspection is done and passes, so purchaser buys the house.
A few months later he runs into some flooding issues. After a plumber is called and investigation done, they find that the plumbing (house was listed as having ‘new plumbing’) is actually all just run into the ground. The toilet, sinks, tubs, etc., outflows all just…stop…in the ground. No connection to sewer, hence the inevitable flooding issue.
So, what’s the next step (apart from calling a lawyer)? Who should be responsible? The realtor? Seller (who bought and flipped, but didn’t live in the house)? Inspector (for obviously not inspecting)? Or is he SOL?
Not looking for legal advice, obviously, just personal experiences where you purchased something that was mucked up like this.
