From storm to settlement:
how sellers shield protected a seller-agent

Selling a property involves careful planning and transparency. But even with accurate disclosure, unexpected legal issues can arise. A real estate agent who sold their property in Texas, found themselves in deep water when the buyer, who happened to be an attorney,  threatened legal action after the house flooded during a storm. 

The agent had disclosed that the property had previously flooded and had installed French drains to prevent future issues. Despite never having had any problems with the French drains before selling, the buyer demanded compensation and threatened to report the agent to the Texas Real Estate Commission.
