Breach of Fiduciary Duty
Houston Real Estate Lawyer Explains Breach of Fiduciary Duty
Real estate professionals such as real estate agents, brokers, and other professionals are considered to be in an advantageous position. Because these professionals have access to “insider industry knowledge,” they have greater access to finding information regarding the property that they are selling than the average buyer does. As a result, real estate professionals are expected to provide all relevant information regarding the condition of a home to prospective buyers.
Real estate professionals can get caught up in confusing and complicated legal battles. When a professional in the real estate industry is accused of withholding information, breaching a contract, or otherwise engaging in some type of professional misconduct, he or she could be facing a lawsuit for breach of fiduciary duty. If you have been a victim of a negligent real estate agent or a real estate agent who has engaged in misconduct or fraud, you should speak immediately with a Houston real estate attorney.
Representing Victims of Fraud & Misconduct
If you have suffered serious property damage or injuries because information that was not disclosed to you, you could be eligible to file a claim. Because you hired a professional and placed specific trust in his or her professional abilities, you have can expect that person to act in a way that upholds that relationship of professional trust. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. When real estate professionals fail to disclose important property issues to you, he or she could be liable for committing a breach of fiduciary duty. Such a breach could cause you to incur personal damages and financial losses for which you can seek compensation.
Examples of breach of fiduciary can include:
- Failure to act in good faith
- Conflict of interest
- Failure to disclose required information
Other cases I can handle involve breach of fiduciary duty in cases including commercial transactions, insurance claims, and other civil lawsuits.
