Representing Professionals throughout the Real Estate Industry
Like many other businesses, real estate brokers, title agents and other professionals working throughout the real estate industry find themselves increasingly susceptible to legal claims alleging negligence, mistakes and omissions in the performance of their professional duties. Even when allegations are unfounded, these types of professional liability claims can be very troublesome, placing individuals and firms at risk for serious exposure.
The attorneys in KDV’s Professional Liability/Errors and Omissions Practice Team have extensive experience representing real estate agents, brokers, title agents, mortgage professionals, closing attorneys, appraisers and home inspectors in matters alleging errors and omissions, negligence and fraud. Through offices located across the country, our firm works with real estate professionals to avoid potential problems and provides strategic guidance and defense when professional liability claims surface.
Building Successful Defense Strategies
For more than 30 years KDV attorneys have been representing individual professionals and their firms in a diverse range of professional liability matters. We have a strong understanding of the real estate industry and the duties and obligations required of its professionals. Our knowledge and experience ensures that KDV lawyers are well-equipped to handle professional liability claims that may arise at any stage of the real estate transaction, from financing and acquisition to disposition of the property. We are also familiar with issues unique to title insurance and regularly defend title agents and other professionals in claims arising out of the procurement of title insurance.
When a real estate professional or firm client faces a professional liability claim, our attorneys take quick action to protect and preserve their reputation and good standing. We understand the tremendous risks associated with litigating these claims and work to resolve these matters as rapidly and successfully as possible. Our lawyers undertake a full evaluation of the allegations and work closely with our clients to build a successful defense strategy. While our goal is to resolve the claim before it escalates into litigation, our professional liability attorneys are well positioned to defend claims against industry professionals in state and federal courts where we are licensed to practice.
Our legal team recognizes the importance of identifying and addressing problems before they turn into costly lawsuits. The lawyers in our Professional Liability/Errors and Omissions Practice provide extensive counseling and training on risk-management practices to help real estate firms and professionals prevent and avoid high-exposure, professional liability claims.
