Problems with a property 5 years on in General Consumer Issues Posted August 9, 2013 Unfortunately the general law is "buyer beware". The seller is not under a general duty to disclose the mould. When the sale was done there may have been a questionnaire completed by the seller. The seller could be liable for incorrect or misleading answers to that questionnaire. I doubt there will be anything specific enough to help you but perhaps worth checking. Thank you for that, to be honest it was pretty much the answer I was expecting. I was just annoyed when I found the foil liners, discovering that rather than fix the problem they'd tried to hide it.
