You’ve done it! After weeks of searching, you’ve finally found your dream home. Built in the 1920s, it is charming, cosy, and in the perfect neighbourhood.

During the pre-purchase visit, you noticed a few cracked bricks and a faint odour of dampness, which seemed normal at the time for a house of this age. You fell in love and went to the notary to sign the papers. A few months later, however, your dream house has become a nightmare. The cracks have expanded and the damp smell is constant. So you decide to sue the owner for hidden defects. Your case goes to court. Will you win?
