Californians who bought natural hazard disclosure reports when they listed their homes with Coldwell Banker, Prudential California Realty, RE/MAX, Century 21 or ERA Real Estate could soon be entitled to full refunds as part of a proposed $39.3 million settlement of a class-action lawsuit.

The settlement agreement, which must still be approved by a federal district judge, stems from a lawsuit alleging that real estate brokers took kickbacks from the company that produced the reports, Property I.D. Corp., in exchange for referring business to the company.
