EDWARDSVILLE - A real estate buyer is suing the sellers for allegedly misrepresenting the property's flooding problems.
Jessica Wyatt filed a complaint on Dec. 30, in the Madison County Circuit Court against Carrie and Nathan Heineman, alleging they made false statements to induce her to purchase their property.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in February 2015, she entered into a contract to purchase the defendants' real estate property with improvements located at 2600 Tulane in Alton.

As a result of the defendants alleged false statements, Wyatt claims she was damaged for purchasing a real property that has a flooding problem, the suit states.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in her favor in an amount exceeding $50,000, litigation costs and any other relief that the court may deem just and fit.
