WINFIELD — Two Putnam County property buyers are suing real estate companies, alleging breach of contract and negligent misrepresentation.
Justin Williams and Catherin Whitney Williams filed a complaint in Putnam Circuit Court against Brandon Ferrari, John Doe Corporation, William McClure, McClure Construction and Real Estate Central LLC, alleging the defendants failed to disclose to the plaintiffs any information about the true condition of a property in Poca.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 15, 2017, after purchasing a property at 134 Samuel Ave., Poca, for the sum of $187,500 the plaintiffs also incurred closing costs and fees, taxes, insurance products and additional improvement son the property amounting to $11,209.05.
The Williamses allege they were provided with defendants' seller's property condition disclosure, stating that the Poca property had no damage to the foundation or other defects. However, after moving into the property, the suit says, the plaintiffs began to notice numerous problems that were not disclosed. The plaintiffs allege the defendants failed to disclose the damage done to the foundation wall during the building of the home and other problems that existed with the property.
The Williamses seek trial by jury, judgment for cost of repairs, punitive damages, attorney fees, injunctive relief and all other damages. They are represented by attorney Steven S. Wolfe of Wolfe, White & Associates in Logan.
