Claims Scenarios

Commercial real estate claims relate to practically every area of a real estate transaction. In several instances our broker was sued because a property failed to achieve a sales or rental price consistent with expectations. One recent claim involving this issue involved a suit for $20+ million. The case was ultimately dismissed against our broker; however, in excess of $200,000 was spent defending this claim and it was recently appealed. Another similar suit in our office was for $8 million and is still in litigation.
