A reader purchased what was advertised as a nine-bedroom home but has now found out some are not legal for use as bedrooms. While the homeowner is wondering about the responsibility on the part of the sellers for false advertising, their bank appraised the home as having nine bedrooms and no issues were raised by the real estate attorney or during inspection. Do they have any recourse? Would it be worth the effort to pursue?
Please chime in with your advice.
