Real Estate Brokers and Agent Liability

Representing clients in real estate purchases and leases as a fiduciary is a potential minefield for litigation.  Potential claims involving brokers and agents may arise out various aspects of real estate sales or leasing transactions, including claims for:

  • Undisclosed defects 

  • Disputed sales commission 

  • Breach of fiduciary duty 

  • Real estate fraud 

  • Breach of contract 

  • Sales commission, earnest money or deposit disputes 

  • Broker, agent or appraiser negligence 

RMKB handles cases alleging a variety of claims including errors and omissions against real estate agents and brokers in both commercial and residential contexts.  With comprehensive experience in handling all sides of real estate disputes, RMKB attorneys are able to obtain solutions that preserve clients' interests in an efficient and cost-effective manner.  Resolution through negotiation or other alternative dispute resolution (ADR), such as mediation or arbitration is sought whenever possible. However, when a settlement cannot be achieved, an aggressive protection of the clients' interests is pursued through litigation.
