Real Estate Matters
Buying a residence is one of the most financially and emotionally involved decisions you will ever make. At Denman & Lerner Co., L.P.A., we understand that this is not just a legal process — this is your home.

In fact, our team is one of the leaders in representing buyers who decide to sue the sellers of real estate that failed to disclose known defects in the property.
We also work to defend sellers who are wrongfully sued by disgruntled purchasers. We have extensive experience in this area and are able to assist our clients in determining whether or not they have a case, and making sure they recover all the compensation they deserve.

Did Your Seller Fail To Disclose Issues?
In Ohio, a seller is required to fill out a residential property disclosure form. This is a specific document required for the transfer of real estate within the state of Ohio that outlines details of the property known to the seller as well as all repairs that occurred in the past five years.
Many times, sellers fail to disclose everything they know because they are afraid it will prevent the sale of their home. However, by not doing so, they are giving the buyer a claim for damages. When you are the buyer, you now have the right to sue for damages to obtain the home you thought you were buying — a whole, safe, correctly valued home. For example, if the seller knows the basement of his home leaks but fails to disclose it, the buyer can later sue the seller for the cost to repair the basement and make it dry. Other times, the inspector hired to check the property does not do a proper job, leaving the buyer misinformed.
