Real estate is one of the biggest investments that most people will make in their lifetime. So, when problems arise with real estate that you own – or a property that you are buying or selling – it can be overwhelmingly stressful and scary.
If you are facing a potential real estate-related legal issue, you should seek counsel from an experienced real estate attorney as soon as possible. Proper and timely legal advice is of critical importance, as mishandling the matter could end up being financially, and emotionally, devastating.

For example, here are a few examples of common issues that arise relating to Maryland residential real estate:
- A buyer purchases a home, only to later discover that the home has major (and expensive) structural problems that were not disclosed by the seller.
- The seller backs out of the contract prior to settlement, and is refusing to return the buyer’s earnest money deposit. The buyer feels that not only are they entitled to a refund of their deposit, but that the seller is guilty of breach of contract.
- A buyer purchases a new construction home, and later finds evidence of sub-standard construction by the builder.
