A person sold us damaged property (second hand apartment)
« on: October 03, 2015, 01:49:03 AM »
Hi all,
We bought second hand apartment in Karimnagar Dist in Telanagana for 17.5 Lakhs. The flat's area is 945 Sq Ft and the age of apartment is 10 years. The amount includes the cost for cupboards in the flat. After the registration of the flat, when the house is treated with pest control, we realized that all the doors, windows, cupboards inside part was eaten away by termites and they are no more useful. Now when we informed the same to the person who sold us this house is not responding properly.  They  didn't inform us about this before, and now the repair cost is exceeding 1.2 Lakhs.  Can any one please suggest? Can we lodge complaint on them? If so under which category can we raise complaint?

Regards,
Ramya Kalagiri.

Not much will come out of it legally.

sale of flat involves transfer of title of the said property it does not include goods in it.

Doesn't it come under consumer forum? Even the basic things like doors and windows are damaged.

It is not possible to charge the erstwhile owner legally for the damaged windows and doors as those fixtures and fittings are fixed with the property which has been sold which means that those fixtures and fittings are included in your Deed of Sale.

It will be hard for you to file a consumer case as the erstwhile owner is not at all a trader by occupation so Unfair Trade Practice will not lies and neither there is any service providing by him. You should have checked it prior to purchase. But you may create pressure on him by filing a criminal case under relevant provisions but how far it will be fruitful is highly in doubtful state.
