I inspect a lot of country properties and having mice is like having firewood or so it seems with the owners (sellers) of such property. Recently, a young couple living in the city decided to purchase a pristine country property. The Sellers’s Disclosure did not make any reference to mice. We found a lot of bees (inspection last Summer) but no tell tale signs of a mouse invasion.
Last week, the clients moved into their new property and discovered a “mouse infestation”…and now they want to hold the owners responsible for “not disclosing this…”.
My feeling is that they have no case and that this is just par for the course (most mice were dead and found in the walls etc.).
What do my colleagues think?
HAPPY HOLIDAYS to ALL
