"DEAR BENNY: We bought a second home a year ago where we've spent very little time (a few days here and there) until recently. We recently discovered a number of problems including an inadequate radiant floor heating system -- we can't get heat past 60 when its 30 or below outside (this alone may cost $25,000 to fix (seller says he never had a problem); the cooktop vent exhausts indoors in violation of manufacturer specs; the window wall is bowing, and window cracking indicates a load-bearing structural issue; and leaks are visible at almost every rafter-to-wall seam ... we can see outside! What are our rights in this situation? We paid $1.5 million for this 2,200-square-foot home. --Vikki"
