Q: how do i file a civil suit for broker fraud and negligence? is a contingency possible after reviewing the merits
if documented proof of fraud and violations of CAL BRE regulations, ca.BPC, just to name a few are documented and verified. I lost my home and this has seriously hurt my family. WHAT CAN I DO ?
A: Sorry to hear you have gone through this situation. YOu should retain a real estate/business lawyer to file a claim.
Depending on the damages and the strength of your evidence, yes, attorneys may be willing to take this type of case on a contingency.
A full consultation would be necessary to properly advise you.
I am a real estate broker in addition to being an attorney.
A: First, act quickly. You don't want to miss any important deadlines, and evidence tends to "disappear". Find an experienced litigator; you can be sure the broker will be represented. Many attorneys will take such cases on contingency. If you have a contract which provides for attorney fees, that will help.
