Information

Why Attend?

  • Learn the specific rules that apply in fraud actions in relation to the sale of real estate
  • Consider the issue from all sides — real estate agent, buyer, and seller
  • Develop crucial strategies for defending and prosecuting fraud claims
  • Cases, cases, cases … this outline is worth more than its weight in gold

Actions for fraud in relation to the sale of real estate have very specific rules regarding liability, the measure of damages, and the effect of the statute of limitations. Understanding the available statutory defenses is critical in prosecuting and defending these claims. For attorneys advising disappointed sellers, or defending sellers and agents accused of fraud, this presentation will offer a breakdown of the essential legal principles and litigation strategies for handling real estate fraud claims, and address the various issues facing attorneys when potential claims of fraud are asserted in a real estate transaction.

Specific topics to be covered:

  • Elements of Fraud and Species of Fraud
  • The “Economic Loss” and “Source of Duty” Rules
  • Common Defenses to Fraud
  • Damages and Other Relief for Fraud
