Buyers file suit after partiers ruin neighborhood

DEAR BERNICE: We live in California and are currently in a lawsuit against the sellers of our home two years after the sale. In the winter of 2007 our agent told us that he knew some folks that had been thinking about selling their home for a while. We saw the house and loved it because it was in a very desirable area, and we made an offer.

Almost immediately after moving in, we discovered that the tenants renting the house across the street were a group of six "20-somethings." They were some of the hardiest partiers we’d ever experienced, throwing parties three to four times per week. A party starting at 2 a.m. on a Tuesday was common.
