From the Forum: When a Bedroom Isn’t a Bedroom

Photo by Nik Lanús


    A reader purchased what was advertised as a nine-bedroom home but has now found out some are not legal for use as bedrooms.

Do they have any recourse? Would it be worth the effort to pursue?

    Please chime in with your advice.
