Real Estate Fraud Attorneys in Colorado

Relentlessly Pursuing Justice for Fraud Victims

The ancient tradition of caveat emptor — meaning “let the buyer beware” — has been weakened in Colorado in recent years, especially when considering real estate transactions and residential home purchases. While there are penalties for intentional misrepresentation during a real estate transaction, there are still many fraudsters and dishonest real estate brokers who try to use the loosened legislation to sidestep those rules and make a profit at the expense of others.

If you have been a victim of real estate fraud, seek the immediate assistance of Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. and our Colorado real estate fraud lawyers. We are a law firm that truly believes in the importance of upholding justice and protecting the members of our communities. When it comes to pursuing fair compensation and closure for our clients, we are relentless and determined.

Helping You Understand Real Estate Transaction Forms

The Colorado Real Estate Commission (CREC) has created and approved a standardized residential real estate transaction contract form. There are provisions in the form meant to help protect the purchaser from structural defects that are known to the seller at the time of the sales contract. Section 10 of the contract to buy and sell residential real estate requires the seller to fill out a seller's property disclosure, which itemizes every known defect in five legal-length single-spaced pages.

A few examples of construction defects that should be disclosed to the buyer include:

Even though someone selling a piece of real estate is supposed to tell you about all defects using the standardized CREC form, they might not. Our attorneys are here to help you fully understand all real estate transaction forms and what should be included on them, so you never have to worry about the underhanded tactics of another party. You can confidently make a purchase or transfer knowing we are in your corner.

In the event that you have already been defrauded, we can help you pursue justice and compensation. We are willing to go to court and fight for a fair verdict if that is what it takes to deliver you the best outcome for your case.
