Failure to Disclose - Defects, History, or Other Significant Issues
If you have recently purchased a home or commercial property in Los Angeles, and
have discovered a defect requiring significant expense to repair that was not disclosed
by the seller, contact our real estate lawyer for a consultation about your rights
and legal options.
Sellers, their real estate agents and brokers must follow a simple rule: They must
disclose known material defects that materially affect the value of a property before
selling it. Otherwise, purchasers who later discover the undisclosed defects can
take legal action.
At the law firm of Baker & Associates, our attorneys have over 45 years of combined
experience; we have served many real estate clients over the years. This experience
helps us avoid mistakes in dealing with defendants and insurers while maximizing
the overall value of your claim
In transactions involving the purchase of real estate, the buyers have a right to
rely on the accuracy of the information provided by the seller and the seller’s representatives.
Even if they have an inspector review the property, they are able to legally hold
the sellers to the information listed on the disclosure form. If the sellers are
shown to be wrong, there is a separate litigation claim that can be made about the
failure to disclose and the conduct of the parties.
Strict Time Limitations
It is important to note that there are time limitation on when your lawsuit must
be filed challenging a seller’s disclosures. Get in touch with our firm as soon as
possible to discuss the timelines upon which lawsuits must be filed in order for
you to protect yourself as a buyer.
