What are my remedies in a real estate dispute?
Homebuyers that were deceived in purchasing their home will find an experienced lawyer to represent them at Sauro & Bergstrom. Our attorneys have successfully recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars for our clients in real estate non-disclosure cases and can help you prosecute your fraud claim if you have been deceived. In addition, in some cases the seller has been ordered to purchase the home back from the homebuyer.
At Sauro & Bergstrom, we understand that every case is different, and tailor the approach to your case based on our in-depth knowledge of the law, the process and what you have to prove in order to prevail in our case. We can advise you as to your best course of action and stand with you throughout the process, whether it is a negotiated settlement, contested arbitration, or trial.
Real estate agents also have duties to disclose material defects about a property, if they are not otherwise disclosed. The attorneys at Sauro & Bergstrom have successfully prosecuted cases against realtors who have failed to perform these duties and have ensured that they were also held accountable for their wrongdoing.
