When you buy or rent a property, you are legally entitled to know the real condition of the property. However, too many people don’t discover defects until after they’ve signed the paperwork, or after they’ve been living in the home for a while. The responsibility of disclosing any defects lies with the seller, so if you have encountered defects that you didn’t know about, and are now in charge of fixing, it’s time to reach out to a Seminole property defects attorney. Here at the law office of Julia J. McKee, Esq, we know how to handle cases involving the non-disclosure of property defects, and make the situation right again. You can count on us to uncover the truth, and ensure that the liable parties address the issues right away.
There are many things that can be considered a property defect, and some of them may be hiding in plain sight. Electrical and plumbing problems, chipping paint, rotting wood, sinking foundations, and even normal wear and tear are supposed to be outlined in the purchase agreement. In some states, it can be considered a property defect if a death occurred in the home! Having a qualified lawyer by your side, like Julia McKee, can help you navigate potential issues with your new home, and get justice for any non-disclosure violations.
You should be able to expect honesty when renting or buying a home. Reach out to us at Julia J. McKee today, and ask for your free consultation.
