NJ, btw. My roofer seemed to think they did, but he's not an attorney. He probably just wants to repair the entire roof :)

I don't know about your state, but in MD all material defects must be disclosed and any representations made in the related disclosure certainly last past closing.  So yes, you would potentially have a claim against the seller, and possibly the inspector if it's really something he should have caught.   

IANYL.  Contact a local attorney for more info.

Good luck proving that they knew about it. And that it was patched 2 years years ago not 12.

Id go after the inspector and his insurer. In NY reps dont survive closing and thats why you get a $500 disclosure credit instead of.disclosing specific.defects.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

IME, the inspectors protect themselves pretty well, basically saying that they take no acriyos. Read the disclaimer that the inspector had you sign .

But,
IANAL

Are all closed court cases available online? Where? How long after a case is closed is it available.
TIA

Any lawyers in the house-

Can I break the terms and conditions of a website. They say I can't participate in there program because XYZ and I participate anyways. I understand that I may be sued but I'm not worried about that happening, I'm worried about FBI knocking on my door.
I will not respond to PM about the UPS method.

I will not respond to PM about the BBLD method.

Do the terms state that the FBI will come knocking on your door if you break them? Do you often lie to people since the FBI won't knock on your door?

It's typically not criminal to breach a contract, unless you're committing another crime in the process; i.e. fraud. 

IANYL though.

I'll be blunt- Do you honestly think your funny? If I wanted a snark answer about how ethical and righteous you are I would of asked that. I asked if there was a lawyer who could tell me if breaking TOS is a felony that you could arrested for or its just breaking a contract. Is that really so hard to understand? If you need a boost to your self esteem just start a thread "Any Physiologist out there of ..." Here is a list of questions that you should ask yourself:

1- Do you sell points
2- Do you book glitch tickets
3- Do you double park
4- Do you speed
5- Do you report all gifts to IRS
6- Do you do MS
7- Have you ever been paid off the books
9- Posted an eBay Daily to get a HT
10- Abused "1 per household" policy with coupons and promos
11- Used lease conquest when you didn't have
12- State correct amount of income on CC application
13- Leeching Off of Unsecured WiFi Networks
14- Jaywalking
15- Littering
16- Copy CD
17-Utilizing the “Rolling Stop”
18- Smoke
19- Give drinks to minors
20- Pay shut membership dues
21- Postdate checks
21- Kill
22- Kidnapp
23- Vote Republican
24- Lie to tuition committee

I can go on.... My point is (if you didn't get it already) that this is something that we all do and something that no one will lose money off (unlike jaywalking which can kill people and causes global warming). However if its illegal then I won't do it.

It's typically not criminal to breach a contract, unless you're committing another crime in the process; i.e. fraud. 

IANYL though.



Thanks!

its only fraud if there is a loss, in the TOS i want to break the other party will not suffer a loss

If you need a boost to your self esteem just start a thread "Any Physiologist out there of ..." Here is a list of questions that you should ask yourself:
There's a difference between breaking a law and/or doing something unethical (which BTW I'm proud to say that I've never done the overwhelming majority of those stuff), when you jaywalk or book glitch tickets you can say that you never agreed not to, OTOH when you agree to T&Cs you're promising abide by it, there's nothing unethical about cheating, it's plain and simple lying.

Additionally, I didn't meant to be funny or snarky, I meant to bring another viewpoint (perhaps the person writing the T&C and blindly trusting people clicking on "I agree"). I'm staying out of this conversation from here on out...
