UNIQUELY EXPERIENCED HOUSTON REAL ESTATE LAWYER
Due to the complex nature of real estate transactions, mistakes and oversights can happen. As an experienced Houston real estate lawyer and a licensed real estate broker, I have represented clients in nearly every type of real estate negligence case. Combined with my unique insight into the law and real estate transactions, I know how to spot when an honest mistake was made or when a mistake was made because of negligence or fraud.
If a broker or seller’s mistakes have cost you money or other damages, these acts of negligence must be assessed and acted upon quickly in order to secure a positive outcome. My firm, Malley Law Firm, PLLC, works hard to ensure that you do not have to suffer the consequences that a seller’s mistakes have unreasonably inflicted upon you.
My experience and knowledge of real estate law are enriched by the following:
- Involvement with the Texas Land Broker’s Association
- Licensed as a real estate broker by the Texas Real Estate Commission
- Past membership in the National Association of Realtors, the Texas Association of Realtors, and the Beaumont Board of Realtors
SELLER ERRORS COST EVERYONE TIME & MONEY
Real estate professionals are required to disclose all information regarding a property to prospective buyers. Unfortunately, even minor, ordinary problems, such as a leaky roof, minor structural damage, or electrical wiring defects, may can be hidden from people interested in buying a property or inadvertently overlooked by a seller. Failing to identify and disclose such problems are significant errors that professional real estate brokers sometimes make, and these errors can cost American homeowners expensive lawsuits, pricy property repairs, and irreversible injuries.
The most common errors that sellers and other real estate professionals make include:
- Intentional failure to disclose information
- Misrepresentation regarding the condition of the property
- Misrepresentation regarding the value of the property
- Failure to conduct thorough inspection of the property
- Overlooking or ignoring property problems
IDENTIFYING REAL ESTATE NEGLIGENCE & TAKING ACTION ON YOUR BEHALF
Learning how to avoid common mistakes that many sellers and brokers make in the midst of real estate transactions can help you effectively protect your rights. With the right representation on your side, a skilled Houston real estate attorney can help you uncover the truth around your case.
Real estate brokers have a responsibility to act in the best interests of their clients. When a broker refuses to address a mistake or take ownership of an error, you should speak with an attorney. I can help you pursue legal action and seek fair compensation if you have been a victim of broker mistakes.
EFFECTIVE REPRESENTATION FOR REAL ESTATE BUYERS
In the state of Texas, sellers must disclose the condition of the property in an official legal document. Brokers are expected to assist in the process of property inspection by using their industry knowledge to help expedite the process and ensure that the inspection is conducted thoroughly. Unfortunately, some brokers do not assist in this process or ignore the process completely, which can lead to serious oversights committed by the seller. Detailed inspections should be made of all aspects of the property.
Types of errors, whether because of mistakes or willful misconduct, that can be grounds for legal action include:
- Breach of contract
- Failure to disclose problems with the property
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Misrepresentation of property
Most of the time, these oversights are innocent mistakes that can be corrected and addressed quickly. If an oversight has caused you exorbitant repair expenses, you have the right to take legal action against the seller.
