What is the name of your state? IndianaQUOTE]Originally posted by redder123
I am a first time home-owner living in Indiana, I purchased my home through a government program that was also suppose to inspect the home. On the disclosure it states that my roof was 3 years old and that there were no problems with the foundation. Well I had to have my roof repaired and the ceiling plastered after part of it fell. My basement walls are bowed, there is mildew on the walls, and the floor gets wet when it rains. I have lived here for 20 months now and I cant afford to move or to hire a lawyer! I am a low-income single mother. What can I do to make the system work for me???

**A: why did you not order your own home inspection?
Did you use a real estate agent? Did you have a real estate attorney? When you bought the property, were you a low-income single mother?

undisclosed problems

The home was purchased in December of 2000 through the Neighborhood Housing Partnership. I believe that it was a home inspection that was done and yes I did have a real estate agent. He was also the agent for the seller. No there was not a real estate attorney. Yew I was a single and low-income at the time, and no I did not have the home independently inspected because I was ignorant to the fact that I would need one, I was trusting the real estate agent and Neighborhood Housing Partnership!:eek:
