What are allowable damages for real estate misrepresentation in Massachusetts?

Additional Information:

What are allowable damages for real estate misrepresentation under Massachusetts law? We signed a P & S with the sellers which had multiple items that were supposed to be completed by the seller prior to closing. They did not complete the work and now refuse to return our deposit money.  What are my legal rights?

ATTORNEY ANSWER:

Damages for any kind of a claim are always difficult to determine without knowing all the facts. If a claim is filed under Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 93A, it is possible that you could recover double or triple damages in addition to attorney’s fees. It is important to keep in mind that you will need an expert to testify on your behalf in order to prove your claim.
