I take it that you did not know that the property was foreclosed on. Usually when that happens your lease is no longer valid and they usually ask you to move. If you are going to sue, go to a Real Estate attorney and tell them and let them know all the specifics. Get everything in writing before you go to the attorney. You need the police report stating that the ac unit was stolen. You need the newspaper clipping or a paper showing the property was foreclosed on, your lease, you also need to write to the bank your complaint of no ac. Get it where it is certified and you know that it was delivered, this way you know that they recieved your complaint since stating it over the phone holds no grounds in peoples opinions in court. I would also look for a new place to stay, I know people have told you this before, but, if you are having troubles with this who knows what else may happen and the time restraint it will take it will take to get things done. Also, look in the lease and it should say something about bankruptcy and foreclosure. The residental lease for NC has something about what you are allowed somewhere in the lease. I hope this helps and also when sueing include your electric bill costs, since I am sure that they have went up and also your son's medical bills. I hope things work out and this helped some.
