Guitarist suing Real Estate Agent

By
Commercial Real Estate Agent

Type in "Real Estate News" into google and the first story you get to read about is guitarist Slash (Saul Hudson) suing their real estate agent and his broker for allegedly lying to he and his wife about size of the home, whether the street is public or private and that title information was withheld from them.

How can you not deduce for yourself if the road is public or private? - Why is it his agents fault regarding size? shouldn't that have been disclosed in the listing as to buyer's satisfaction?

 Why is it that negative news gets such a great placement in google?  What is the world coming to?

Some people will sue anyone for anything. I guess there is more to the story than meets the eye.

I think Maria Shriver had it right -- the media has gone off the deep end. It's tough to find real, meaty news these days.

As for the private road/public road, it's not always obvious! Good agents will check if there is a question and title reports also usually reveal the info, if you know what you are reading. The problem is often that the agent discloses the information and the buyer is so saturated with info that he doesn't get it.

Ann- you might be right, it's hard to tell when a buyer/seller actually grasps the information you are sharing.

Ryan - This sounds like this guy is a little crazy.  It just goes to show you that anyone will sue anyone over anything.  Incredible!

I have personally pointed out problems in a house before, describing what the sellers said the problems were, and handed the buyers a copy of an estimate for repairs. Then after the purchase, they call complaining about the problem, and deny ever having been told about it... I guess like all of us, buyers often aren't really listening to what is being said enough to remember it later. Or they conveniently forget... Sad times where living in when a bad decision on our parts can cost someone else lots of money and time. Whatever happened to being responsible for our own decisions and actions???
