A common real estate dispute in California is non-disclosure or misrepresentation of a property seller or broker. California real estate laws require a seller to inform potential buyers of known material defects, such as earth movement, construction defects, defective plumbing, electrical and environmental controls, and improper drainage. California law also requires real estate brokers/agents to inspect real property, disclose all defects and point out indicators of potential future real property issues.

We represent our clients in real property legal issues with homeowner’s associations, local government entities and subdivisions.
