Going through a real estate dispute is frustrating and time- consuming. If you’re like most people, you want to avoid one at all costs.
Unfortunately, you are involved in a situation where you believe that you’ve been sold a property with false representation. Real estate fraud is sadly common, and you believe that you’re a victim.
How do you know if you’re a victim of real estate fraud?
There are many factors that go into a fraud case, but if the agent, seller or buyer in a transaction makes false representations and then costs you money, you could have a fraud case. For example, if your real estate agent did not tell you about large offers on a property you were trying to sell in order to purchase it at a lower rate themselves, you may be able to accuse them of, and hold them accountable for, real estate fraud.
Rental fraud is another big issue. It happens when an alleged landlord says that a property is available for rent, but you later find out that they didn’t own the property at all. You may lose your deposit, months of rental payments and see other financial impacts.
No matter what kind of situation you’re in, if you believe that you’ve been lied to or taken advantage of, you may be a victim and deserve support. Our website has more information on real estate disputes and what to do if you think you’ve been a victim of fraud. The right help can make a difference in how your case is handled.
