HOUSTON — A Harris County woman is suing two property sellers, alleging breach of contract and negligent misrepresentation.
Karla Nieto filed a complaint Feb. 10 in Harris County Circuit Court against
Joaquin Trejo and Guadalupe Trejo,
alleging they made false representation of the property in order to sell it.
According to the complaint, on Oct. 30, 2015, Nieto purchased the Creston Place property in Harris County from the defendants. On July 18, 2015, the suit says, she was handed a document by the Trejos titled seller's disclosure notice indicating the property did not have defects or malfunctions with its foundation and that there were no termites or other wood-destroying insects.
When she attempted to repaint the house, the lawsuit states, Nieto discovered the house was full of termites and the foundation was faulty. The plaintiff alleges the defendants violated the agreed contract by making false representation of the property for the purpose of inducing Nieto to purchase the property for their pecuniary interest.
Nieto seeks trial by jury, monetary relief between $100,000 and $200,000, damages, attorney fess, pre- and post-judgment interest and all other equitable relief. She is represented by attorney Nicholas Whitaker of The Ahn Law Firm in Houston.
