Bradley Chandler, Jessica Chandler, both next-of-friend of Cassandra Chandler vs. Wanda Mason-Ballenger
PA-Andrew C. Skinner; J-Sanders
* The Chandlers moved into a rental property in Bakerton on March 1, 2009. In September, they realized their 20-month-old daughter had eaten paint chips from a door frame in the house, which later tested positive for lead. They moved out of the house out of concern for the safety of their daughter. They claim the defendant failed to make disclosures about the "target home" containing lead paint, which falls under the Residential Lead Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act. Due to this violation, the Chandlers say they suffered losses because of this failure, including the costs of having blood tests to determine lead levels and the costs of moving. In addition, the defendant refused to reimburse them for the cost of fuel that was left behind as well as the replacement of the well pump. The Chandlers are requesting reimbursement of the costs of the fuel, the well and all damages and other relief as deemed appropriate by the court.
Case number: 10-C-91
