Protect Your Property

For most people, the purchase of their home is the largest and most important financial investment they will ever make. Some sellers may take advantage of inexperienced buyers in real estate transactions.

An example of this type of conduct is the selling of properties with known, but undisclosed, material defects existing at the time of closing. In a Real Estate purchase agreement, a common practice is to incorporate an “as is” agreement in the transaction documents without there being any negotiation for such a waiver of rights. The “as is” agreement may be buried in the fine print and overlooked among the numerous documents signed at closing.

Real Estate brokers and agents only get paid commission if the real estate purchase contract is signed and the sale closes. Brokers and agents may be financially motivated not to reveal information about serious problems with a new home. Common defects that substantially impair the value of a home are black mold, foundation problems, plumbing leaks, ground water drainage, wood destroying insect infestation and damage (subterranean termites and carpenter ants), structure damage, roof leaks or damage and flooding.

Protect your new investment, home, and family by having an experienced real estate attorney on your side before you sign the closing documents. Since 1995, the real estate attorneys of Looney, Smith & Conrad, P.C. have been protecting families and their investments into new homes.
