Whether you’re a purchaser or a seller of real property, you need to be aware of your rights and obligations.
Sometimes, after the purchase of a property, the buyer discovers that there is latent defect that the seller has failed to disclose. Or the seller finds out that there is a breach of a certain condition that should entitle the seller to the amount of the deposit placed in the escrow account.
In a landlord-tenant relationship, there are rights and duties attached to each party. A wide range of issues can involve habitability of the premises, rent, covenant of quiet enjoyment, etc.
Contract law generally governs the conduct of both seller and buyer as well as landlord and tenant.
