Buying a home or a commercial property is arguably the biggest purchase you will ever make. Why risk that without proper advice and counsel?
Recently, we had a client that bought a house, and per the contract, the seller was supposed to replace the roof prior to closing. At the time the client purchased the home, she was represented by another Realtor. ® Soon after the buyer moved in, the roof leaked, and it was discovered that the roof was never replaced by a licensed roofer. The Realtor ® who represented my client did not properly follow up to see if any permits were pulled or whether the person that had “replaced” the roof was licensed. My client paid to replace the roof herself and engaged me to help recoup her costs. We wrote a demand letter threatening legal action and the seller quickly reimbursed my client for the roof replacement, no questions asked. A Realtor ® alone is not able to write a demand letter with the same force and authority as a Real Estate Attorney. In addition, a Realtor ® cannot hold the seller accountable, but a Real Estate Attorney can. More importantly, a Realtor ® with a legal background can prevent this mistake from happening in the first place.
