A: If the seller did not disclose a known latent material defect, and you can prove he knew and thus defrauded you then yes you have a case.

You can see that this is a somewhat technical analysis. I recommend that you contact an attorney to discuss the facts and your proof so that you can make an informed decision about proceeding or not with a lawsuit against the seller. The good new is that if you win you may be able to collect 3X damages + attorney fees.
