Real Estate Agent Errors and Omissions
Gallagher Sharp attorneys have a broad range of experience defending real estate professionals in every aspect of residential and commercial real estate transactions, including real estate agents and brokers, title companies, escrow officers, appraisers, and home inspectors. Whether through insurance carriers or directly, we represent professionals and individuals in claims arising from all phases of a real estate transaction. We have successfully handled the defense of claims for professional negligence, including breach of fiduciary duty, negligent misrepresentation, and fraud based on alleged faulty preparation of sales documents, failure to follow escrow instructions, negligent appraisals, and the failure to properly inspect property and to disclose defects.
Members of our practice group also represent real estate professionals in disciplinary proceedings before various state agencies and regulatory boards. From the initial investigation through litigation, our real estate attorneys are focused on protecting our clients’ licenses and careers. As a complement to our legal representations, we also provide seminars on relevant real estate topics for real estate agents and brokers concerning real estate agent and broker liability.
