Lakewood Non-disclosure Issues Attorneys
At Murray & Damschen, we have seen cases where sellers have failed to disclose several different types of known problems with a home, including major structural damages, water damage and un-permitted work.
The standard real estate forms used for most home sale transactions in Colorado include a specific requirement that the seller provide the purchase a disclosure form identifying several types of defects or problems known to exist in the home, and in some cases, defects or problems known to have ever existed in the home, even if the condition has been repaired. A seller's real estate agent may also have an obligation to the purchaser to disclose material defects that he or she knows about.
Standard form real estate contracts can also require that the seller pay the buyer's attorney's fees when the seller has breached the contract in this way.
