A significant amount of the buildings and residencies in the area are older. The median year that houses and condos in Springfield were built is in 1972 and the median year that apartments were built was 1974. As a result, some of the older buildings may not abide by the updated building codes. If you are told that a building is up to code and then learned that it is not, you may be able to sue the real estate agent who lied to you. This is especially true if the agent purposely withheld important information from you in order to make a sale.

Also, some of these older homes can be full of hazards like poor ventilation, molds, crumbling foundations, termite infested walls, or lead paint. Whenever you find a significant issue with your home, you have the right to seek compensation from the previous homeowner or the real estate agent who glossed over these details. Whenever you have concerns with a real estate transaction, you need to talk to an attorney today. With the right lawyer on your side, you can obtain the money that you deserve or obtain the legal action necessary in connection with your case.
