Real Estate Litigation

The process of buying, selling or developing real property is one of the most complex areas of the law as they involve old common law and modern secured transactions, as well as lending regulations. If you are a buyer, seller or land developer embroiled in a real estate dispute or would like to take precautions to avoid conflict, our firm can work with you to ensure your money and property rights are adequately protected against adverse parties and claims.

On paper, purchasing real estate seems like a relatively straightforward transaction: make an offer, wait for acceptance, draft a contract, settle the deal and exchange the money. However, each step of the purchase process represents a potential point of disagreement or misunderstanding. Our firm is adept at handling any problems that arise in the sale or purchase of a home, including:

  • Disputes occurring in the drafting and execution of a purchase contract;
  • Handling a rescission or misrepresentation by the buyer or seller;
  • Problems with the title or survey;
  • State and local regulations, including compliance with zoning ordinances;
  • Issues with a mortgage lender;
  • Disagreements involving new home construction and implied or expressed warranties;
  • Landlord/Tenant disputes.

 

Whether you are a seller with misgivings about the purchase contract, a buyer with questions about title or a developer in a dispute with your current residents, working with a real estate litigation attorney is the best way to avoid and overcome conflict in a cost-effective manner.

Our firm is skilled in reviewing the results of a title search and taking appropriate action to clear clouds on your title. A cloud on a title is a term referring to a potential claim or land interest by another party, which can result in the inability of a buyer or seller to settle the purchase contract. More specifically, banks and lending institutions will generally not lend money for the purchase of a home if there appears to be an apparent cloud on the title. By working with a real estate litigation attorney, you can avoid or settle problems with adverse possessors, agricultural tenants or creditors with judgments attached to the land.

Our firm also has expertise in resolving Landlord/Tenant disputes concerning non-payment of rent and Lease violations.

In order to escape the many lurking pitfalls inherent in real estate transactions, we encourage you to contact our firm for more information or to schedule a consultation.
