Are there grants available for a first time home owner to replace electric/plumbing in their duplex?

I just bought a house a week ago and since the plumbing has had issues that require it to be replaced ASAP and since opening a wall have realized the electric is not up to code and is probably a firehazard. I did not budget for these expenses when I purchased the house. :( Are there grants available for a first time home owner to replace electric/plumbing in their duplex?

Sounds like the previous owner was not very forthcoming about the true condition of this home. You might want to check with your real estate agent to see what recourse you may have --- or check for Legal Aid services in your area.

In the meantime I recommend that you check out this article about Home Repair Grants - it does a good job of clarifying what is (and is not) available and where you can look for help. Options include government programs as well as help from non-profits and churches.
