The modern realtor faces professional risk with every transaction he or she brokers. The most careful, prudent, and rule-compliant real estate professional may one day be notified of a claim of negligence, or be the subject of a complaint against their actions. Often these claims and complaints are exaggerated, misplaced, or even vindictive. The realtor who had been asked to answer a claim or complaint needs the specialized expertise of the MBZ Real Estate Brokers’ Defence team.
Unlike other litigators and professional-compliance lawyers, the lawyers at the MBZ Real Estate Brokers’ Defence team specialize in the real estate industry itself. They know how a real estate transaction works from the realtors’ end, from the pitching of the listing to the post-closing paperwork. They also know every aspect of the legal process involved in the closing of the transaction, including where various responsibilities and standards of care might lie. They are thoroughly familiar with all conduct rules and regulations of RECO, OREA and TREB, and can provide representation at the relevant tribunals and disciplinary proceedings.
When a realtor faces litigation, the MBZ team’s intelligent and powerful advocacy will ensure that you are provided with a fully-informed and vigorous defence. Our experience and skill is evident in every stage of the litigation, including active negotiation of settlement options, on through to trial where warranted.
Your skill as a realtor shows in your pride for your work. Don’t let a negligence claim or professional complaint undermine your business.
