Real estate transactions will more often then not require a large sums of money most likely representing the most costly purchase most people will make during their lifetime. These transactions often have many problems associated with them and can be quite tricky to navigate. In some cases, both parties will enter the negotiations with a spirit of cooperation and are able to resolve their differences without the need for complicated negotiations or the need for too much lawyer intervention. However, more often then not this isn’t the case and real estate transactions can get quick complicated and will require an experienced and professional real estate lawyer by their side.
One of the biggest issues people face when dealing with real estate transactions involves the failure to disclose defects or other material issues.

This can also affect the value of the property as defects and other potential issues will lower the value of any property.

Hiring the Right Agent to represent you
Many people will make the mistake of trusting their real estate agent when looking to purchase commercial or residential property. Real estate agents are out to make their commission. The higher a property is sold for the more commission they stand to make. On top of this they may chose not to disclose certain issues that may affect a potential real estate transaction.

In most cases before proceeding with a potential real estate transaction a deposit will be required to be made. This is the initial amount placed on the possible purchase of a commercial or private property. However, what happens if the deal falls through? What happens to the deposit?
