When you decide to buy property, it is critical to have all the necessary information to make an educated decision and a wise investment. For many people though, they find themselves in a position where they own a piece of property with issues, which they were not forewarned about. According to real estate law, this is known as a case of “failure to disclose.” This is a type of fraud that occurs when a seller fails to inform, conceals, or omits crucial information about the property to the buyer. Some of the common things that are omitted from a real estate transaction include hazardous materials, environmental contamination, and safety issues.
