PRINCETON — Two Mercer County residents allege the condition of a property they purchased was misrepresented to them.
Ronald J. Forth Jr. and Frank E. Dackieweiz filed a complaint in Mercer Circuit Court against Refined Realty LLC, Cameron Clemont and Gabrielle Morgan alleging fraudulent misrepresentation.
The suit states that the plaintiffs purchased a property in Bluefield from Morgan on July 25, 2017, for $8,000. Morgan was represented by Refined Realty and Clemont, the suit states.
The plaintiffs allege the property was marketed as "new occupant ready," but noticed water damage in its interior before purchase. They allege their agent inquired about the water damage and was told it was the result of a roof leak that had since been repaired.
The plaintiffs allege after purchase and moving in, water entered the house during a rainfall, and they discovered a hole in the roof. They allege the defendants made misrepresentations about the state of the property and that had they known the condition of the property prior to the purchase, they would not have purchased it.
The plaintiffs are seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. The plaintiffs are represented by Derrick W. Lefler in Princeton.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Mark Wills.
