What Is Rescission?

Video Summary: Explaining the term “rescission” with an example of rescission offers with a non-traded REIT.

Video Transcript:

Rescission is a measure of damages that allows an investor to effectively rescind the deal. So it’s a very important measure of damages for investors who are stuck in illiquid investments because it would be very difficult to determine what the damages are. So if you've been sold, for example a non-traded wheat or non-traded real estate investment trust, which is a very common investment sold to investors that they probably should not be in, the investment be almost impossible to determine what your damages are because there are no buyers for it.

So rescission allows an investor to go back to the brokerage firm or the investment advisor that sold in the investment and rescind the deal effectively, give back the investment, and receive back the money that you paid for it.

Client Reviews
"I am going to miss conversations with you, Sam Edwards. You’ve been a wonderful lawyer and a friend. I loved learning legal jargon from you. But, even more, it is your self-respect and commitment to your position that I admire and your persistent patience-your equanimity. With great appreciation, thank you!" M.B.
"My experience with Ryan Cook has been very positive. Through every step of the litigation he explained what to expect to happen. When I spoke with him later he reviewed the process. He was very patient, and I never felt rushed. I have already told friends how wonderful he is." L.R.
"I want you to know that I very much appreciate your expertise, hard work, and guidance that led to a satisfactory resolution with Raymond James. From our first meeting, I felt "heard" and that my situation and story were respected. Every subsequent interaction I had with any of you - in person, via email, or by phone - only corroborated that feeling. What great work you do on behalf of people like me who have been wronged, yet don't know how to navigate the appeals/mediation/arbitration process as you do. I will be forever grateful." M.L.
"Good positive experience. Guided us through a difficult process and was pleased with the outcome. Everyone I dealt with was exceptional." A.G.
"Good intelligent attorneys who never miss a beat. I set my expectations high, and they delivered above and beyond. Do not miss the opportunity to let SSEK represent you. Top-notch, efficient and effective firm." S.M.
