When a snake was discovered inside the walls of Amber Hall’s new Colorado house, she was horrified.
In April, Hall and her two children relocated to their new Centennial, Colorado, home. Hall, 42, a single mother, claims she has dedicated her whole life to saving money for a house.
“I was unpacking in here when one of my dogs knelt down and began moving slowly towards this corner, so I was like, ‘What’s it, buddy?'” I didn’t know, maybe it was a spider. I approached and watched the snake slide up the wall as I approached,” Hall recalled. “When I first started watching, there were more snakes than ever before.”
Since then, she has discovered snakes beneath her patio and behind her plasterboard. She claims that she has already spent more than $1,000 on traps and expert assistance.
“The snake wrangler that caught some snakes for me said the snakes he caught look to be about 2 to 3 years old, so he imagines they’ve been here for a long time and there’s a lot more,” said Hall.
According to Hall, the listing agent is not cooperative and neither of them returned calls from Denver’s FOX31. If the buyer can show damages and evidence that the seller really knew about the condition, they may file a lawsuit, according to the Colorado Association of Realtors.
