IM not a lawyer or advisor. I think that, if the previous owner knew about it before he/she sold it to you it was their obligation to disclose it to you.

Also, if you bought it through the sellers broker you can probably sue the owner and the broker. and possibly get your money back or get them to fix the problem. Get a lawyer asap. Shalom.

I just moved from NY to NJ…

we got a ticket in the mail addresses to prev. owner from the township saying that we have an “illegal multiple dwelling”…

who can I approcah, how do I remove the violation, can I get in trouble even if its address to the old owner?

Is the seller (if she knew?) or anyone else responsible?

will I have to pay the $200 a week until “amended”, ,even If i was never notified?
