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 has cost you money or other damages, these acts of negligence must be assessed and acted upon quickly in order to secure a positive outcome.
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 of 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.
