Civil Fraud

we purchased a home for $1.5mil, 9 months later we discovered that the house sat 6' into the set back, and that also there was a special assessment for dredging the waterway at the rear of the property, the disclosures in the contract said no to every question, we later discovered that the seller, realtor, title agent were aware of the problems, by way of letters from county, it also turned out that the title agent was the sellers personal attorney, is this civil fraud? Do we have a case? I am trying to sue, but need a good attorney, the seller said that because I held a real estate license, but have not practiced for 3 years that I can't sue him. We are from the UK and don't know the laws here.
