HOUSTON – A Katy man alleges he was not informed of problems with a property's plumbing and water system before he purchased it.
Michael Melville filed a complaint on Jan. 7 in the Harris County District Court against Rustic Knolls Investments and Thisislivin Properties LLC alleging negligence, common law fraud and other counts.

The plaintiff alleges there is mold in the water system as a result of faulty plumbing and that the plumbing and piping system is out of compliance and illegal. He alleges the defendants have refused to cure the defects.
