California Real Estate Litigation Lawyers
Regardless of the terms of any real property purchase agreement, circumstances often arise that threaten the value and salability of your real property. These circumstances may arise from a seller’s failure to disclose material facts, fraud, and misrepresentation, hidden and undisclosed construction defects, damages from nuisances, subsidence, fire or landslides, other events which diminish or reduce the value.
And, once you as the owner become aware of any defect or issue that materially affects the value or desirability of your real property from the perspective of a potential buyer, you must disclose all that you know about the issue, or risk a lawsuit in the future and possibly having the sale rescinded and revoked, thus reversing the sale and requiring the refund of the sale proceeds. Protecting yourself from these risks requires that the individuals or builders who created the damage or loss be the one who is responsible for the damage caused, not you.
And, to achieve this, one should hire an experienced real estate litigator to represent your claim and your recovery from those who are responsible. This often requires an investigation into the cause, and extent of the problem, as well as an investigation to determine the insurance available to pay and the financial viability of the target of your investigation and a potential lawsuit. This requires an experienced attorney and one who will personally handle your case and its unique elements.
