WINFIELD — A property buyer is suing James Hoover, Stephanie Hoover, et al, various entities, citing alleged breach of warranty and negligence.

April Parcell filed a complaint in Putnam Circuit Court against the defendants alleging breach of duty to disclose.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 31, 2016, she purchased defendants' Hoover's property located at 530 5th Avenue in Hometown for $119,500. Upon moving in, she discovered numerous egregious defects in the property that needed costly repairs and replacements. She has suffered lost wages, unnecessary living expenses, annoyance and inconvenience. The plaintiff holds James Hoover, Stephanie Hoover, et al responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to disclose known defects to the subject property.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an order declaring that the loan was void and unenforceable, award for all damages, attorney's fees, costs and such other and further relief deemed just and equitable. She is represented by Joseph T. Johns of Turner & Johns PLLC in Charleston.
