I purchased a home on December 1, 2010. On December 10, 2010, I found a bat in the house. I Called my realtor and she contacted the former owners who insisted they had never had a bat problem. I called a bat specialist who arrived on December 13, 2010 and found that the attic was infested with bats! I paid $85.00 for the inspection and was quoted $2400 to come back in the spring to remove and seal home. He has a lifetime guarantee so the fee is understandable. I do not believe that I should be legally responsible for this fee. I do not have the money for the removal but it is necesary. What are my legal rights?
I appreciate the advice as soon as possible.
