Q: Seller disclosed their house had a Class 4 roof but cannot certify the roof quality after the purchase. Buyer recourse?

I bought a single family residence after the seller disclosed the house had a Class 4 roof. My property insurance discount is contingent on having a Class 4 roof. Neither the seller nor El Paso County can provide me with any evidence to certify the roof is Class 4. What is my legal recourse?

You can hire an inspector to inspect the roof and certify that it is, in fact, a Class 4 roof, and provide that certification to your property insurer.

When they finally did, the title was mailed to me instead of the dealership. I am reluctant to do this dealership any favors. If the title is all I need to... View More

You likely qualify for small claims court. You may need an attorney for assistance, but you are not required to have an... View More

Q: I purchased a car last Tuesday, if the seller knowingly sold it to me with a big problem (transmission) what can I do?

They did not disclose any transmission damage (though they did mention a problem with the catalytic converter)

You can void the sale and/or seek a reduction in price. Try talking to the seller. If the seller will not negotiate, you will need to file a small claims case. For small claims, you can file pro se (w/o an attorney) or with an attorney. Your local courthouse will have self-help resources also try... View More
