So I just purchased this property in San Diego, California and my home inspector didn't catch the water damage around two areas around the windows. It seems to be some browning of the area, crackling and at the time moist/soft to the touch. My current inspector isn't very helpful and I can't help, but feel like I got screwed by everyone from the inspector to my agent (that isn't very helpful either). The seller didn't disclose the issue, so I'm wondering what type of contractor do I contact to: a) assess the damage and determine if it was a pre-existing condition (it is!) to support my case in a civil lawsuit? b) determine what needs to be fixed and the estimated cost? Help would be much appreciated, as I'm at a loss on where to start and completely in over my head.
