Failure to Disclose

East Bay Failure to Disclose Property Defects Lawyer

During the process of purchasing a home or other property in California, buyers must ensure that they protect themselves financially by performing thorough due diligence before finalizing their purchase. Although there are many varying types of real estate disputes, one of the most common disputes is the failure to disclose property defects prior to sale. In many instances, a seller unintentionally or intentionally fails to notify a buyer about defects in a property. This type of negligent or intentional misrepresentation can be extremely costly and disturbing if the seller failed to disclose a substantial defect or circumstance that significantly affects the value of the property.

Common Failure to Disclose Property Defects

There are a vast number of defects that can plague a property and significantly lower its value. In some cases property defects can place you and your family in danger. At the Law Office of Thomas C. Tagliarini, some of the common defects in failure to disclose cases that we have represented over the past 30 years include:

  • Mold
  • Hidden water damages
  • Electrical and wiring defects
  • Leaking roofs
  • Plumbing defects
  • Building code violations
  • Construction additions built without permit
  • Foundation defects
  • Construction performed by unlicensed contractors
  • Septic tank systems defects

Recovering Damages from Failure to Disclose Property Defects

We have seen that a vast number of defects do not surface until months or even years after purchase of the property. We can help you to determine the best course of action. If you recently purchased a property that has severe defect(s) our East Bay real estate attorney can strive to have your purchase rescinded. If it has been years since your purchase and defects are now evident, in some instances you may still have the ability to seek compensation to repair the defect(s) the seller failed to disclose.
