In both commercial and residential real estate sales, proper disclosure by the seller of defects in the property is essential and required by Kansas and Missouri statutes. Many non-disclosure problems can be avoided by the proper usage of state realty forms, developed for commercial, vacant land, and residential transactions.
If there is a wrongful failure by the seller to disclose a defect of real property, the buyer may have a fraud claim which could warrant punitive damages. For fraudulent non-disclosures, e.g., inadequate roof repairs, foundation issues, etc. - Juris can help you with the aftermath whether you were the buyer or the seller. For both commercial and residential non-disclosures, the attorneys at Juris are well-versed in representing both Plaintiffs and Defendants with these types of issues.
