We recently purchased a home through NACA and we love our home. But after we moved in we began to get visits from the inspector of the city saying that there are outstanding violations on our home and that it is listed as a vacant home. They gave us a list of violations in the sellers name that they are demanding we take care of. The title company says that there was a title search done on the home but we never got any notice or had any conversations about these violations. These are things we would have made the seller take care of, or at least for some money toward it. The violations are dated October 2015 and we closed April 2016. The sellers claim they never saw it and I don’t believe that because their name and home address is on the paperwork. Things on the list also include permits that they never pulled to do repairs on the home. I don’t feel like I should have to pay for a permit to do work that I didn’t even know was done. I have tried to go through my NACA realtor and she stopped answering the phone. The sellers realtor will not reply to the title company at all either. I need some help. This is ridiculous and I am disappointed in my NACA realtor. As a first time homebuyer, she claimed to have been champions for us, and she claimed that she wanted to make sure we did not get ripped off and she DID NOT DO THAT. I have been referring people to NACA left and right but I will definitely let them know to use their OWN realtor!

From what you have written here, this appears to be an issue for an attorney, not your realtor. If everything you have written here is true, it would appear that the sellers engaged some potentially illegal activity, especially if it got past the title company without being caught.
This isn’t an issue for your realtor. You need to seek the advice of an attorney.

@cmlat105 Hi! I know this post was about five years ago now but I may be going through a very similar situation. How did this end?August 5, 2020 at 11:43 am #71121cmlat2015Member
@lrodriguez129 Hey! I had to just take the L. We tried to take the sellers to court but they disappeared. So we just said forget it , paid the money to have th tings corrected and got really cool with the city inspector, which bought us more time. I had to go to court and explain to the judge all of the things that happened, becausee they kept fining me in the process of me trying to figure this stuff. I didn’t have to pay any fines but I did have to pay to make sure all of the itmes that were not right, were corrected. It sucks that this is my experience as a first time homebuyer, but you don’t know what you don’t know. Next time I will be much more prepared and understnd what’s going on better. I hope your situation works out. If it’s anyting like what I ent through, I’d suggest getting yourself a lawyer.October 27, 2020 at 8:23 am #72429LRodriguez129Participant
@cmlat2015 thanks for your response and sorry for my delayed one. I’m so happy to hear you were able to figure this out and it worked out for your favor. I hope it does for me too but I’m scared there may be some things out of my reach. Would you mind speaking with me outside this forum? Maybe I can email you..
