The buyer of a foreclosed, century-old home sold for $3,600 was awarded $115,000 because she did not receive an EPA lead notice. Who should be responsible for such notifications?

The owner is presumed to be the seller. In this case the owner was not the seller. The seller is the foreclosed owner & agent of sale and forced the sale without proper notice.
