A Chicago couple who bought a $1.36 million home featured on the HGTV reality show “Windy City Rehab” is suing to try to force the show’s hosts to take back the house, which they say is plagued by leaks and shoddy work.

According to the lawsuit, the day after the buyers closed on the 4,000-square-foot luxury home in Lincoln Square, an upper-floor shower leaked gallons of water into the kitchen ceiling below.

And things only got worse, the suit says, with a leaky roof, poorly installed windows and other issues.

James and Anna Morrissey filed the lawsuit Dec. 30 in Cook County circuit court, citing defective and shoddy work, breach of contract, breach of warranty and consumer fraud.
