After breaking a cold weather record Tuesday, residents across the Denver metro are still battling the effects of frigid temperatures Wednesday. The STORM STATION 7 team says if we reach our projected low of -5 before midnight, we'll break the record low of -4 set in 1882. But chief meteorologist Mike Nelson says the low in Denver could drop to -8 overnight. There are 2 to 4 inches of snow on the ground across the metro area, with 4 to 8 inches in the foothills and Front Range mountains. Denver received 2.3 inches of snow, making this our first official snowfall.
You fell in love with the white picket fence and the nostalgia convinced you to buy an older home. Within a few weeks of moving in, you discover that the plumbing is in poor condition. Already strapped by your recent closing costs and down payment, you call the realtor and hopefully inquire, “Is the seller liable for the bad plumbing?” Generally, when you purchase a home, you are on the hook for all future repairs. However, exceptions do apply. To determine the liability, if any, of the seller for your plumbing problem, courts will look to the purchase agreement for the home, the nature of the problem, whether you had a home inspection, and any specific misrepresentations by the seller.
