GALVESTON — A couple is suing the property owners who sold them their League City home, alleging the defendants did not disclose defects with the property.
Billy Wischnewsky and Amy Wischnewsky filed a complaint on March 14 in the Galveston County District Court against James Marsh, Kasey Marsh, Ames Properties LLC and Marilyn Ames individually, alleging fraud.
The plaintiffs say they entered into a Texas real estate commission contract May 5, 2018, with the defendants to purchase the property at 5209 Blue Cypress, League City. The suit states the defendants failed to disclose several defects in the condition of the property to purposefully defraud the Wischnewskys..
The plaintiffs say the contractor they had paid to construct their back porch had not received permits and, as such, the work was done illegally and did not have windstorm inspections performed on the structural components, making it uninsurable.
The plaintiffs say they were required to make repairs out of their own expenses, as the defendants had failed to disclose this information about the property.
Billy Wischnewsky and Amy Wischnewsky seek monetary relief between $200,000 and $1 million. They are represented by attorney Cris A. Rasco of Rasco Law Firm in Texas City.
