The past owner installed a pellet stove himself, without getting a permit for it. The inspection before we bought the house didnt say anything about the stove. Two years ago we were going to have it cleaned and found out about defects on its installation. What can we do, whats the statute of limitations for an action. We bought the house 2 and a half years ago. The Seller's disclosure document says that the pellet stove has been installed correctly. The past owner didnt say anything about installing it without a permit, nor the real state agent. We learned about it because we went to check it in town hall. No permit, no inspection after its installation, is my understanding. What could I do? Can I have the past owner pay for the correct installation of this? Thanks,
