Q: I live in ohio. I just signed a contract to purchase a home and want out due to failure to fully disclose information.
There is damage to the foundation, a limited disclosure was presented at the showing with realtors paperwork. However before signing the contract I was not able to view the engineers report which most certainly would have changed my mind. There was also no disclosure about simular damage in a bedroom walls where the block are being moved inward about 1/2 inch in several places. This would require an engineer to evaluate suggest repairs. I just prefer to cut the crap and call it quits. What can I do?
A: Talk to seller and real estate agent and ask for mutual termination and release. If seller does not agree, use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local real estate attorney to review and advise you.
