Washington business and real estate lawyer Jeff Helsdon explains what fraud is and how to prove it.
When you buy a business, you expect everything to be legal and nothing hidden. Fraud is the misrepresentation of any facts when you are sold a business. If the seller was not honest during the sale, you may be damaged by the effects. Misrepresentation can be the form of liabilities, assets, warranties, or a number of other things in regards to your transaction. It is usually difficult to prove fraud and when doing so it must be very thorough.
A court will not just assume fraud has taken place; you must strive hard to prove it. The high burden placed on you to prove fraud make it very important to be well prepared for court. Watch the video now to learn more.
