I am not familiar with OK but I am getting more and more
familiar with disclosure issues with a really bad first house
purchase. Yours would be best fought in small claims court
yourself. It is a more practical court for the amount you
would need to take care of the water issue and carpet. They
find more fault in what was covered up and if the prev owners
are not represented by someone it costs you less then $100.00
to file and if you get the right judge you can get them to pay
for that too. Judges don't like people who take advantage of
the unsuspected. Take good pictures and make sure they have a
date on them...if you do not have a camera that dates make
sure to develope them as soon as you take them. Also...make
sure to bring to court the disclosure statement they provided
you before closing. I know sometimes it may not seem like it
is worth your time to do all of this but if at all to make
sure you let "them" know that they can't do it to someone else.
