GRETNA – The current owner of a building is suing its former owner for allegedly not disclosing property defects before closing the bill of sale.

3101 7th Street LLC filed suit against Pontchartrain Properties LLC in the 24th Judicial District Court on April 30. 3101 7th Street LLC claims they closed on the purchase of a commercial property from Pontchartrain Properties on April 20, 2012. The plaintiff alleges one of their tenants notified them in November of 2012 that there were problems with the heaters and air conditioners on the property and that under the contract Pontchartrain Properties is responsible to make the repairs, but has refused to do so.

The defendant is accused of breach of contract.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought for cost of repairs, attorney’s fees, legal costs and equitable relief.

3101 7th Street LLC is represented by Preston L. Hayes of Metairie-based Chehardy, Sherman, Ellis, Murray, Recile, Griffith, Stakelum & Hayes LLP.

The case has been assigned to Division O Judge Ross P. LaDart.

Case no. 726-467.
