BELLEVILLE – The purchaser of a real estate parcel is suing over features that were allegedly included in the information about the property but the defendants weren't entitled to sell.
Mary Moore filed the suit Feb. 17 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Mark Warner and Tammy Warner of Caseyville.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 10, 2006, the parties entered into a contract in which the plaintiff agreed to purchase and the defendants agreed to sell property located at 512 N. Main St. in Caseyville. Prior to signing the contract, the complaint alleges, the defendants said they owned land on both sides of the residence that included a pool and clubhouse.
The plaintiff agreed to the purchase based on that information.
However, Moore alleges the Warners fraudulently misrepresented what was included with the transaction.
Because of the alleged fraud and negligent misrepresentation by the defendants, the plaintiff seeks an excess of $50,000 for each count, court costs, attorney fees and other relief the court deems proper. She is represented by Terry L. Neubauer of Neubauer, Johnston & Hudson in Fairview Heights.
