Would you know if your real estate investor, stockbroker, or investment money manager engaged in investment fraud or securities fraud through the sale of proprietary investment products?
What if they made false promises, or provided you with misleading or fraudulent investment or financial planning advice to further their own financial interests rather than to achieve your investment objectives?

We lead busy lives and we trust our financial planners to serve our best interests. After all, that is the reason why we hire such professionals in the first place.

When this occurs, it is considered a form of professional negligence or malpractice and is prohibited by federal and state laws.

REAL ESTATE FRAUD
Real estate investment fraud may occur due to fraudulent appraisals, negligent misrepresentations, fraudulent misrepresentations, breach of contract, seller fraud, or developer fraud. Additionally, other real estate fraud may occur through the sale of condos, houses, vacation homes, commercial properties, or other buildings sold with significant undisclosed defects or sold as a result of a significant misrepresentation regarding the property. For example, there may be a fraudulent misrepresentation regarding the actual value or condition of some piece of investment property, which induces you to purchase the property. Even if you have tried your best to do your due diligence, you may be misled by the mortgage company, escrow agent, title company, or real estate agent. Many of these people and entities have a personal interest in seeing you complete the sale, as they may be agents of the fraudulent seller or a party that will collect a commission on the sale, should it go through. In these situations, it is particularly important that you have a representative who will evaluate your case, fight on your behalf and, if necessary, file suit against those who committed or perpetuated the fraud.
An experienced Bay City, Texas or Matagorda County real estate fraud lawyer can advise you on whether you have a claim for real estate fraud or your chances of pursuing a successful failure to disclose lawsuit based on undisclosed defects or misrepresentations regarding the property you purchased.
