Typical problems leading to disputes during real estate sales are moisture damage, indoor air problems, excessive radon concentrations, the size and dimensions of the property and other construction problems.
Most real estate sales disputes, that end up in court resulting from moisture issues or mildew issues, are so called latent defects. Typical of a latent defect, is the fact that it comes as a surprise for the buyer and the seller. The buyer has not been able to detect the defect during the house inspection and the seller has not tried to conceal anything about the property.

If you are in the position of the buyer, you must make a consumer complaint as soon as the defect is detected. The seller must respond to the complaint as thoroughly as possible. It is also good to be aware of what the buyers demands of compensation are. If you are unsure about anything, contact us.
