NEW ORLEANS - An Orleans Parish resident is suing several entities allegedly involved in a transaction of property that was later revealed to be not merchantable.

Taahira Turner Nadir filed a lawsuit against Tara, LLC, Vincent Taravella, Southern Title, Inc. and Commonwealth Land Title Insurance Company in the Orleans Parish District Court on July 26. Nadir claims that the listed defendants are responsible for causing him financial loss by withholding vital information concerning the purchasing of numbers 1, 3 and 5 Westbank Expressway in Westwego.

The defendants also are accused of failing to inform that there were liens against the property and that the property was subject to large delinquent real estate tax assessments. They are also accused of taking money that should have gone to certain lenders.

An unspecified amount is sought for all damages deemed reasonable in the premises of this case.

Nadir is represented by attorney Eric Oliver Person.

The case has been assigned to Division J Judge Paula A. Brown.

Case no. 2012-07295.
