Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Winneshiek County, Linda M. Fangman, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (9 pages)

            Linda Hovden appeals from a district court order denying her relief related to the purchase of her home.  She appeals the district court’s decisions related to alleged violations of Iowa Code chapter 558A (2017) and trial attorney fees.  Dwaine and Cheryl Lemke (Lemkes) request attorney fees on appeal.  OPINION HOLDS: On our review, we find substantial evidence supported the findings of the district court.  We affirm the dismissal of Hovden’s claims the Lemkes violated chapter 558A.  Because we affirm the district court’s decision on the merits, we also affirm its decision to deny Hovden’s claim for trial attorney fees.  We deny the Lemkes’ request for appellate attorney fees.
