Real Estate Agents and Brokers
Claims against real estate professionals have increased more than any other area – including personal injury suits – according to a recent ABA survey.
Because sellers and buyers of property usually have most of their transaction-related interactions with a realtor, the realtor is usually the first one they look to when there is a problem with the transaction, even if it stems from the appraisal, the inspection, or elsewhere. Issues can arise both during the sale and purchase process or months or years after the transaction is complete. Realtors dealing with foreclosed properties face special challenges due to unavailability of complete and accurate information.
