Pomona, CA asked in Stockbroker Fraud, Personal Injury and Real Estate Law for California

Q: What can I sue agent and broker for non disclosure of mold and proof of fraudulently not disclosing it

I bought a home when I was on Active Duty and agent failed to disclose mold. He hid home inspection report from me and sent it as his own disclosure. We have proof he did agent disclosure the same day as home inspection and admit to discussing all issues with home inspector. Broker confirmed the home inspection was never sent to me after the purchase of home. My son has got sick and now we are left with a home not worth it value because of other issues with home including a failing foundation.
