Snake-Infested Home Knowingly Sold by Realtor, Lawsuit Says

By    |   Thursday, 04 Jun 2015 08:38 AM

A snake-infested home was sold to an Annapolis couple by a real estate agent who knew the residence was overcome with serpents, The Associated Press reported.

The Capital Gazette reported that Jeff and Jody Brooks filed a $2 million lawsuit two weeks ago. They say their family was driven out because the home was crawling with snakes.

The Brookses purchased the house in December. They seek more than four times the home's price in their lawsuit against real estate agent Barbara Van Horn, Champion Realty, and ex-homeowner Joan Broseker.

The Brookses say exterminators found black rat snakes, snakeskins, dens, tunnels, and feces.

The lawsuit says a snake inspector determined the house was infested and unsafe for children.

Van Horn declined to comment to the newspaper. An attorney for Van Horn and Champion Realty says the company doesn't comment on ongoing litigation.
