What are Undisclosed, or Latent, Home Defects?

Undisclosed home defects are flaws in resale homes that buyers could not reasonably know about, even if they have conducted a thorough home inspection. These defects, like a mould problem or unsafe wiring, could cost the new homeowners time, money, or compromise the health and safety of residents. If sellers, inspectors, or real estate agents knew about these flaws and chose not to disclose, you may be justified in seeking legal remedy.
