Failure to disclose causes more real estate disputes than all other issues combined. Disputes often go to trial in front of a "trier-of-fact" usually a judge, a jury, or an arbitrator. When a case goes to trial, each party gets to present the facts as they see them. After the facts are presented, the trier-of-fact determines whether the licensee fell below the standard of care.
The standard of care is determined by what a typical real estate licensee would do in that particular situation. If the trier-of-fact determines that the licensee's conduct falls below the standard of care, the licensee is negligent. Once the negligence is established, the licensee will be held liable to the plaintiff for all damages caused by the licensee's negligent conduct.
While a licensee’s first obligation is to their client, the licensee must promote and maintain fundamental transactional honesty and fairness between the parties. All parties involved in the real estate transaction must be treated with honesty and that requires disclosure in many cases.
Protect yourself from the risk of nondisclosure. Our Disclosure Is Not A Secret course is designed to provide you a clear understanding of real estate disclosures. This course is a must have.
