GREENVILLE, S.C. - Kerri and Jason Brown discovered a secret room behind a bookcase containing a homeowner's worst nightmare - mold. Also in the room was a handwritten note: "You found it!" What the Browns found was a mold problem so serious the previous owner was forced to move, according to the note.

Fearing their young daughter's health, the Browns hired an environmental engineer who detected high levels of several types of mold, including a black mold fungus called Stachybotrys.

Sounds like they could bring a suit the remediation costs for the previous owner not revealing a serious and known defect in the house. Most jurisdictions these days require sellers to reveal all known defects or fix them before selling the house.
