They can sue you if you don’t pay and you can sue them. Anyone can sue anyone. The better questions concern this risks and costs of litigation. I suggest you meet with a local attorney, preferably with consumer law experience. Ask about the Merchandising Practices Act.

I believe the Georgia law would apply. It is doubtful if you could even sue in Florida, depending on whether the dealer does business in Florida.

Bruce Martin Broyles' answer
In Ohio, the seller of a home can be held liable for actively concealing defects in the property. The active concealment would constitute fraud and your statute of limitations does not begin to run until the fraud is discovered. Your claim is very dependent upon facts and what evidence you will be able to prove those facts. First, you state: The basement had been freshly painted prior to showing with a very thick paint..." You will have to demonstrate that the basement was painted shortly...

Please note that naturalization eligibility is dependent on several other factors, beyond the permanent residency time-period requirement.

There is no way to explain the in's and out's of the Florida Lemon law via this type of forum. You can google the Florida statutes. I suggest that you consult with an attorney in your area about your specific set of facts to get specific advice on whether your situation falls under the Florida Lemon law.

Joseph Kelly Levasseur's answer
You could call your local police department, and the Attorney generals office and file a complaint, they could investigate the allegation and if the mechanic did in fact pass a car and give you an inspection sticker illegally, take away his ability to give them out, fine him, or even charge him with a crime of fraud. You then may have a lawsuit against the seller and the mechanic for conspiracy if in fact it can be proven. If charges are brought and anyone of these guys are found guilty,...

Q: Can a dealership sell a used car in Missouri with faulty airbags without disclosing it?

1 Answer | Asked in Consumer Law, Products Liability and Lemon Law for Missouri on
Answered on Apr 3, 2018
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer
The challenge you might face is proving that the dealership knew of the problem and made a misrepresentation to you. If you can prove this, you might have a decent claim under Missouri's consumer fraud statute, the Merchandising Practices Act. Contact a local attorney to discuss.

Contact a lemon law attorney, but I don't believe that being in an accident makes a car a "lemon". That usually refers to a defect that can't be repaired after more than one attempt.

"As is" means what it says. You took the risk. Unless the seller actively misrepresented the facts, you have no recourse. If you want to sue for fraud, you have a Small Claims action. You will need some very convincing proof.

There is not a 'lemon law' per se, however, there IS the possibility of proceeding against a builder's license IF ALL ELSE FAILS. (Note that caveat!)

You HAVE to give the builder the opportunity to repair issues, and provide appropriate notice before you can do anything else, but at THIS point what I'd recommend is you contact a DIFFERENT home builder / contractor who is familiar with the type of issues you are having, and get a 'second opinion' as to what is going on.
