Bats in attic -- legal recourse?
Hi, we closed on our first house about a month ago. We were originally very glad to have a fairly clean home inspection report. However, a few nights ago, we were eating out on the patio when we heard a scratching noise in our roof -- this lasted half an hour -- and then about half a dozen bats squeezed out from under the overhang of the roof. It was kind of creepy, like the scene from Batman Begins.
We are pretty much resigned to that fact that these bats have made their home in our roof or attic at this point, and we did some research on bat exclusion and guano cleanup and it might cost in the thousands of dollars!
Our question is: we were not disclosed about this information prior to purchasing the home, and the inspector did not mention bat guano to us... had we known, we probably would have thought hard before purchasing. Is there any possible legal recourse on the previous owner and/or home inspector for neglecting to inform us of bats in the roof?
