Bosa Square Footage Misrepresentation Litigation

Bosa Development has built 9 residential condominium towers in California, 7 of the buildings are in downtown San Diego. In August 2009, lawyers from the Firm filed a class action lawsuit alleging that Bosa (and its sales agent RE/MAX) sold the condominiums with a square footage “bait-and-switch.” When selling its condominiums Bosa promised a specified square footage but actually built and sold units that were up to 28% smaller. 

The square footage promised by Bosa was inflated because Bosa’s measurements included space that the buyer does not own and cannot occupy. The lawsuit alleges that Bosa used the inflated square footages to increase sales and sales prices.

The Bosa condominiums covered by the lawsuit are: Bayside, Electra, Legend, Discovery, Park Place, Horizons, The Grande, Marquee, and Radiance.

On July 7, 2011, the San Diego Superior Court certified the case as a class action. The class includes persons who purchased from Bosa residential units developed by Bosa in California.

The Proposed Settlement
The parties have reached a proposed settlement creating a settlement fund of $16.25 million.  The settlement fund will be used to pay settlement relief to class members and to pay for settlement administration costs, attorneys’ fees and expenses, and plaintiff service awards. 

The proposed settlement provides two types of relief to class members. 

Class members who still own their units, or resold their units using the actual square footage will receive approximately $78 per square foot multiplied by the square footage differential of the particular unit. For instance, if the unit is 130 square feet smaller than Bosa advertised, the class member will receive approximately $10,140.

Class members who resold their units using Bosa’s inflated square footage numbers, instead of the actual unit size, will receive $200 per unit resold.

The Court Review and Approval Process
The settlement is not effective and checks will not be mailed until the settlement is approved by the Court. The Court approved the settlement on October 10, 2014. Once the Court's ruling becomes final (which will take at least 60 days), settlement checks will be sent. We currently anticipate that settlement checks will be mailed in the first quarter of 2015.
