What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
I bought my house 09/2004. I've recently discovered old insect damage and damp subfloor. There is evidence of past repair to the area, but there has also been recent repair to an adjacent area. I've just had an insect inspection and treatment. The inspector reported all damage is old (no present activity). I had the home inspected before purchase but the damage was hidden by "ceiling coverings" that the inspector didn't remove. ( no evidence on ceiling coverings )
How long (in PA) do I have to take action against the seller for old insect damage? I guess I really can't "prove" that the damage was there and he knew about it when I bought the home. I may also have ruined any claim by having some repair work done, even though that work has not been done to the insect damaged area.
The seller was the original, and only, previous owner.
