So I bought a house through private sale under the impression that, even though the woman had a dog and a cat in the home, she kept it in pristine condition. We were told by this woman that she even shampooed her carpet once a week and never smoked in the house.
Well now that we are moving in, we have found that the dog and cat hair in the carpet is INCHES thick (literally, meaning she never even vacuumed, so much as shampooed, and all of this is hidden by the color of the carpet) and the walls are yellowed (evidenced by the white spots where she took down the items she had hanging on wall).
Do we have any type of legal ground on this? Can we get any of the money back? It wouldn't be a big deal to just clean it up, except I have to work all this week, and we HAVE to move Saturday because my landlords have someone who has paid July rent and will be moving in as soon as we can get out. I won't have any time to super vacuum (which, I have to get a new one because we BLEW OUT the motor on our current one with the mess of dog hair in the carpet- how did I never notice this?!!) and the walls need painted before I can move in furniture (our gun cabinet and entertainment center are solid wood and large which = heavy and never being moved once they find a home).
As is moving/home buying is not stressful enough...
