All Things Real Estate: Disclosure challenge requires unlikely scenario
All Things Real Estate: Disclosure challenge requires unlikely scenario: Q: We sold our house in late 2016. We used a real estate agent and the whole process went pretty smoothly. Today we got a letter from two people we’ve never heard of demanding that we pay $18,500 to them for repairs to the house. Apparently the people we sold the house to have resold it to this couple and now they’re demanding money from us for failing to disclose problems with the foundation. We never knew the house had foundation problems and, even if we did, these aren’t the people we sold the house to. How can somebody we’ve never even met sue us for failing to disclose something to them?
