How Real Estate Agent Negligence Hurts You

Your real estate agent must exercise due care when they are working with you as a buyer’s agent. The last thing that you want is to get stuck making payments on a home when there are serious problems. Homebuyers would not consciously buy a problematic property; sometimes, it happens because the real estate agent did not properly do their job when helping a client buy a home.

The real estate agent works for you and must perform their job as any other professional with obligations does. If not, you can contact a real estate agent negligence attorney to pursue your legal action.

Real Estate Negligence Is Different from Fraud

First, it is important to know the difference between fraud and negligence. Fraud is when a real estate agent intentionally deceives a client. Negligence is when the real estate agent does not do their job properly, and it leads to their buyer owning a home with more than they bargained for when they encounter unanticipated problems.

While negligence may be a less serious offense than fraud, it is still grounds for a lawsuit. Real estate agent negligence can encompass a number of different situations, including the following:

  • Missing a deadline specified in a contract
  • Not passing on all required seller disclosures to their client
  • Failure to disclose all material facts about the property
  • Failing to schedule inspections

The real estate agent does not even need to have the intent to mislead you. The mere fact that they did it shows that they did not do their job properly. Still, you would need to show in a lawsuit an element of carelessness that could be considered negligent.

Whitney, LLP’s attorney have successfully filed lawsuits for home buyers against negligent buyer’s agent and seller’s agents.

An agent must exercise due care in the performance of their duties. The question is what a reasonable real estate agent would do under the circumstances. The usual claim is that your real estate agent knew something but did not take any action to let you know. Alternatively, you could argue that your real estate agent was just plain careless, and you suffered damages because of it.
