Buyer’s Statements regarding Non – Compliance
- Buying an apartment in Israel
- The Sales Contract
Even if the contract explicitly states that the buyer has carried out inspections in the apartment or that he has been given the opportunity to carry out inspections, the binding rule today is that ‘the seller will be careful’, and therefore a seller who knows about an essential defect in the apartment and chooses not to declare it is a fraud. And therefore, a deceiver will not be saved from the results of his deception, because the opposing party could have discovered the truth (and did not actually discover it).
Only if the opposing party knew the right facts real knowledge because then the party who did not mention them should be credited.
