Malpractice Defense For Real Estate Agents
Real estate agents have general duties of confidentiality, loyalty and disclosure that vary in scope between their client and the parties on the other side of the transaction. Material defects on the property, for example, must be disclosed to both sides. Information that would not impact the value of the property, on the other hand, likely does not have to be disclosed to someone you don’t represent.
We can aid real estate agents who are accused of:
- Negligent misrepresentations, ex., about building regulations or zoning laws
- Breach of fiduciary duties
- Breach of contract
- Failure to disclose material defects
Our professional liability attorneys can examine your situation and provide a sophisticated defense. With years of experience at the forefront of representing professionals, we have the skills to protect the professional reputation you worked so hard to earn. We can also work with you to develop protocols and contracts that avoid professional liability issues.
