Fraudulent concealment of factual circumstances

Malicious concealment – In the case of malicious concealment, the seller or broker is accused, among other things, of concealing defects in the property. If the seller or broker has a duty of disclosure but attempts to conceal the defects known to him, the accusation of fraudulent concealment is in the foreground. Concealment includes the perpetuation of an error or the suppression of facts.
