Property buyer claims owner misrepresented its zoning status

By Philip Gonzales | Dec 11, 2018

PITTSBURGH — A buyer is suing McGill & Goodman LP, a real property owner, citing alleged violation of the real estate seller disclosure law.

Xin Tan filed a complaint on Dec. 11 in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas against McGill & Goodman LP, alleging the property owner fraudulently disclosed that the property was zoned for two-family use.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 3 she purchased defendant's property at 3202 Niagara St. in Pittsburgh for $300,000. As a result of the defendant’s breaches, she suffered damages as she now owns a single-family property that will not produce the rental income represented at the time of sale, the suit says. 

The plaintiff holds McGill & Goodman LP responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to disclose there was an ongoing legal action that impacted the zoning status of the property.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all damages in an amount to be proven at trial, costs, fees, interest and such other just and appropriate relief. She is represented by Robert Lampl, James Cooney, David Fuchs, Ryan Cooney and Sy Lampl of Lampl Law in Pittsburgh.
