Protections for Wisconsin home buyers would be restored, under a proposal in the Legislature.
The measure is authored by state Senator Jon Erpenbach (D-Waunakee) in response to a Supreme Court decision last year. Erpenbach says that ruling basically removed the legal rights of a buyer to sue the former owner of the home if it was later found they failed to disclose a problem.
Erpenbach says the bill would allow the buyer to go back to the seller to demand repairs be made.
The Waunakee Democrat says a coalition of real estate groups, home inspectors, and attorneys helped draft the bill.
