Question

Broker purchased condo as buyer/agent. Buyer just discovered that a leak occurred during the listing/pending sale of the unit. Seller and LB were both aware of the leak. How should buyer/agent move forward, legally, with respect to this issue?

Answer

Broker/buyer should consult her lawyer. Buyer needs to evaluate whether she has a claim against seller and what the best process will be for pursuing that claim. The Legal Hotline lawyer does not represent broker/buyer and cannot assist buyer in evaluating a claim or strategizing the best steps for collecting damages, if any, suffered by buyer. Buyer must seek the advice of her own lawyer for assistance in answering this question.
