Misrepresentation of Property
Knowledgeable Houston Real Estate Attorney
When you are on the market to buy a home, you probably try to do research to the best of your ability. Buying a home for you and your family can be one of the greatest investments pf your life, so it is understandable that you would want to consult real estate professionals and other industry insiders to learn whether the property is the perfect fit for you. If a real estate broker or real estate seller has misrepresented the property that you have purchased, then this can constitute an act of negligence.
I know how frustrating it can be for a person to have jumped through hoops to do research on a home only to have to deal with costly property repairs because of misrepresentation by the broker or seller. If you are a victim of misrepresentation of real estate property, you have rights! Speaking with a Houston real estate lawyer can be one of the greatest steps that you can take after discovering any type of property defect that was unreported when you purchased the home.
Examples of Property Misrepresentation
Sometimes, sellers won’t admit to any property damage until it is too late. If you have suffered great property damage because of a sellers’ misrepresentation of any real estate property, you could have the right to seek financial compensation for your damages. I can help clients with a range of case types involving misrepresentation of property.
Misrepresentation of property can arise from a number of issues, including but not limited to the following:
• Air ducts
• Heating and cooling systems
• Fences and land boundaries
• Gas lines

|• Smoke detectors
• Carbon monoxide alarms
• Security systems

Sellers are required to disclose any known property damage. If a seller has failed to disclose information or has misrepresented to condition, size, or value of the property that you have purchased, you could be eligible to seek financial compensation for your damages.
