The most common reason for litigation between buyer & seller is over incomplete or inaccurate disclosure from the seller.
My focus when working with buyers is to ensure the disclosure package is thorough, complete & accurate. The last thing I want for clients is for there to be a costly surprise after escrow closes.
I personally have been through mediation & arbitration with the sellers of our current home (before I was a Realtor) because they did not disclose certain defects about our property. It took several years to settle our case, $30,000 to handle the property defects & $80,000 was spent on legal bills. This was a very stressful experience & something I never want a client to go through.
When we meet we will talk further about steps I take to protect clients as they complete a home purchase.
