Property Contamination Lawyers in Houston
Helping Clients Hold Sellers Accountable for Unfair Purchases
Have you purchased property recently for your venture only to find out that the land was not what you expected it to be? Property contamination is a common problem that happens when the land has been used in such a way that it is not safe or usable in the way the buyer had planned. This is not a fair transaction, and our Houston property contamination lawyer at Daly & Black, P.C. stands ready to help you obtain compensation for any losses you may have suffered as a result.
What Does Property Contamination Include?
In cases where a land is untenable or a building is unsafe due to the activities of previous owners, holding the seller accountable can be very difficult. There could be many different causes, so it is important to have the help of an attorney with experience handling these matters.
Property could be contaminated by:
- Industrial waste, resulting in a condition called brownfields
- Lack of vegetation that causes more intense flooding and runoff
- Fuel spills such as gas or oil
- Radon, asbestos, mold, or other indoor contaminants that prohibit a building’s interior from being used
- Hazardous waste in the groundwater
What to Do When Faced With Contamination
The first thing a new property owner should do upon discovering a problem is to document it. The sooner you can prove that the issue was not caused by you, the better your chances will be of obtaining compensation for the cost of repair. By speaking with Daly & Black, P.C., you can get a better understanding of how to make the property usable again and how to hold the seller accountable for what they owe.
If you are being accused of property contamination, it is important that you obtain the help of a legal team that can help you understand if the fault lies with you. Because of the high costs of property repair, you should not try to fight these charges on your own.
