Segal McCambridge Philadelphia associate David A. Yavil recently shared his insight and analysis on Pennsylvania real estate transactions with CRES Insurance Services in a blog post titled “Murder Is Not a Material Defect in Pennsylvania Real Estate Transactions.” The article, published Oct. 3, 2013, is featured in The CRES Current.
In the article, Mr. Yavil explains the significance of a recent court opinion and its effect on Pennsylvania real estate practices. Under this court opinion, psychological defects, including murder, are not material defects under Pennsylvania Law and do not require disclosure in a residential real estate transaction. Other types of crimes and non-structural impairments may be implicated as well.

Mr. Yavil has extensive experience representing a wide array of clients including product manufacturers, licensed professionals, health systems, premises owners, real estate brokers and agents, insurers and employers in various civil litigation matters including personal injury, premises liability, real estate, medical malpractice and employment. Mr. Yavil has handled all aspects of litigation including depositions, mediations, arbitrations, and trials. Through the Philadelphia VIP program, he frequently represents individuals on a pro bono basis involving all types of tort and contract actions.
