Business Trial Group Files Palm Beach Real Estate Lawsuit
The Business Trial Group recently filed a lawsuit in Palm Beach County, Florida, on behalf of a purchaser of a commercial property that was not properly zoned for its intended use.
The property in Juno Beach, Florida, was to be the new location for the purchaser’s private school. The Complaint alleges that the seller contractually agreed that the property was zoned for use as a private school. As a consequence, the buyer was forced to incur significant expenses to bring the property into compliance and continue operating the school.

Breach of Real Estate Contract
Sellers must truthfully represent material facts about a property. In this case, LDR Academy, Inc. (which operates a business known as Little Dude Ranch Academy) engaged Eustice T. Strickland and School Investment Properties, Inc. to sell its property. Our client eventually entered into a contract for the sale of the property with LDR Academy, Inc.
As stated in the lawsuit, the contract specifically provided that the intended use of the property was for a private school and there were no restrictions, easements, or limitations (including zoning and other government prohibitions) that would prevent the property from being used as a private school. But after the sale closed, the purchaser learned that the property was not properly zoned for use as a private school, resulting in substantial costs to bring the property into compliance.
The lawsuit asserts a claim for breach of contract against LDR Academy, Inc., because the property was not zoned to be used as a private school.
