  • Parking lots

  • Signage

  • Setback issues

Disclosure/Non-Disclosure

Every real estate transaction entails varying degrees of disclosure among the parties. Disputes can arise both during and after the transaction. In some states, commercial real estate sellers are not obligated to disclose defects as long as buyers are allowed to inspect the property in question. Nevertheless, sellers are still required to be honest in any disclosures they made, otherwise they risk charges of misrepresentation and/or fraud.

Our commercial litigation lawyers are experienced in handling disputes arising from disclosure matters in real estate transactions.

Agent Errors/Omissions

Real estate agents are like doctors in the sense that they both have to comply with a standard of care. They must follow the standards set down by the states in which they practice. Like doctors, real estate agents can be sued for malpractice. In the case of real estate transactions, it’s referred to as errors and omissions. Real estate agents can face litigation for:

  • Failure to disclose a property’s physical and structural problems

  • Breach of fiduciary duty

  • Failure to validate a property listing’s veracity

  • Failure to inform clients about property liens


The business lawyers at Burg Simpson have specialized experience in these areas, including failure to disclose adverse material facts, failure to advise clients to seek expert advice, and earnest money disputes.
