We are in hopes to raise donations to help fund our family of 5 that is in need of foundational wall restoration. We had purchased our first home with all the money we had saved. We were told that the newly renovated home had no issues. When we met up with the real estate agent and there firend the home inspector, we voiced that we came from a rented home with basment sewage backup and flooding and needed to find a home to call our own. The first week upon moving in, there was heavy rain falls which lead to approx 60 gallons of water pouring into the home. We were devasted because we were only informed of condensation and to keep a dehumidifyer in the basement. We contacted the real estate agent immediatlety to contact the seller to have this resolved as it was not noted or disclosed to us. We were told by the agent that there has never been any water leaking into the house other then a little condensation and this is the first time they were aware of this. However she asked us to get a few quotes from local proffessional companies in which we did immediately. We got 4 quotes ranging from $7,000, $11,300, $12,000 and $25,000 to $30,000. we were shoned away due to thee apparent ridicous amounts. Through this process of the inspections done with these four companies ( Wise Cracks, Omni Basements, E.O. Masonry & Waterproofing, and City Wide Group Inc) we found out that this has been an underlying problem for many years and there was patch work done previously. To our surprise these companies showed us the walls and floors were covered up by thick paint and patchwork in many areas. We documentated every email, text and videos for proof. We later found out by the real estate agent that before putting the home up on the market, the seller had asked her if she thought the foundain leaking would pose a problem and she suggested no!Therefore leaving the seller to cover it up with paint and patchwork. All in all we were lied to by the agent who represented the seller and us. We are in no position and have no money whatsoever to be able to fix the problems and hire a lawyer. So we are desparately seeking help. We need your help, without your help the foundation walls will only get worse. We are in hopes that we can rasie enough funds to be able to fix this and possibly hire a lawyer. We do not wish this to happen to anyone trying to purchase a home and would only suggest you hire a home inspector that has no relation to the seller or real estate agent and who has a very good track record.
