Purchased a condo in CA 6 months ago. Discovered bathroom renovation and other changes were all unpermitted by unlicensed professional. Now having mold and water damage issues. Is there any recourse against seller or remodeler?

I believe that checking permits is part of the discovery / due diligence process where the responsibility is on the buyer. Unless the seller told you it was permitted and it wasn’t, or showed you permits that were forged, you likely accepted responsibility for the repairs as it was when you took possession.

Damm dude that's unlucky, did you waive your home inspection contingencies?

No we got a full inspection. We found a small amount of mold in one area and they gave us $3k.

The newly renovated bathroom which had never been used was not sealed properly and incorrectly built. It’s a curbless shower with no pan so the design must be well done to prevent issues

Should we do a heloc to use for the rental property deposit AND then also get a second for the actual second mortgage?? How do most people do this?
