Real Estate Fraud

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


Buyers' Rights

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.
