HOUSTON — A buyer is suing Adrian B. Novcaski, a seller, citing alleged fraudulent inducement and unjust enrichment.
Stephen Cusimano filed a complaint on Oct. 24, in the Harris County District Court against Adrian B. Novcaski alleging that the seller breached his contractual obligations.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he agreed to buy defendant's home at 16634 Oak Lane in Channelview for $50,000 and made payments to defendant. Over the course of two years, he made improvements to the home and expended tens of thousands of dollars for renovations. He now suffers lost of the home, personal belongings, equity on the home and money expended for improvements. The plaintiff holds Adrian B. Novcaski responsible because the defendant allegedly refused to accept his installment payments since September 2015, locked him out of the property and re-listed the house for sale.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of not less than $100,000 but not more than $200,000, attorney's fees and costs, pre and post-judgment interest and all other equitable relief to which he is entitled. He is represented by Marrick Armstrong and Ghazal A. Vahora of Smith, Reed & Armstrong PLLC in Pearland.
