Real Estate FAQ Hampton Roads, Virginia

Brian, what is the difference between special and general warranty, and should my buyers be worried?

A general warranty seller warrants (promises or guarantees) that he holds clear title to the property and has a right to sell it. This warranty covers (all) problems created back in the chain of title. A special warranty seller, however, basically only promises or guarantees that he has not created a title problem. Obviously then general warranty is better than special warranty.

Man who walked away from home purchase successfully sued for $155K

Virginia Lawyer’s Weekly is reporting a fairly interesting breach of residential contract case between a buyer and seller that I thought I would share.  The seller won a $155,000 judgment against the buyer, who walked away from the deal and refused to close.  The seller’s large damage award was due to a precipitous drop in value realized on the re-sale and carrying costs.  There isn’t anything particularly notable about the law in that, but reading between the lines it would appear that the buyer realized he had made a bad deal and went to a lawyer (or his agent) to try and get out of the contract (gosh, that never happens does it?).  Clearly he was advised that he could use the POA disclosure (non-disclosure really) as an out and he canceled primarily on that basis (I guess they also claimed other outs that were to silly too discuss apparently).  Read the case here for that discussion.
 
One lesson is that what you think might be a POA may not in fact be a POA so don’t blithely assume it to be so.  Another lesson is this: I’ll look for the subsequent article, which is where that losing buyer sues his agent and lawyer for giving him bad advice.  And you wonder why I (trepidly sometimes) say “I think the answer is this …. but you never know what will happen in court”?
