Common types of real estate disputes
Real estate transactions can be complex, often involving different types of policies, laws and legal obligations. Although most real estate transactions proceed without any problems, some situations require us to engage in litigation to settle disputes. We help with many different types of real estate disputes, and some of the most common issues include the following:
- Breach of contract. Any lease or purchase and sale agreement is a form of contract. When one of the parties indicated in a contract does not fulfill agreed-upon obligations, that party may be found in breach of contract. We help you take action to seek damages if this happens to you.
- Boundary or zoning disputes. Boundary disputes may emerge when property boundaries haven’t been clearly set or property lines do not correlate with legal lines. Zoning disputes occur when those wishing to build in certain areas encounter resistance about land use or zoning rules.
- Disputes with real estate brokers and agents. Occasionally, we see disputes with real estate brokers and agents involving topics like sales commission, breach of fiduciary duty, contract breach and real estate fraud.
- Implied warranty. A property’s “implied warranty” is an implicit guarantee of suitability. If a person selling the property did not provide relevant information about its condition, it may provoke a dispute about the property’s implied warranty. These types of cases are usually complex, requiring a judge or jury to decide whether the undisclosed information had a significant effect on the property’s value.
- Specific performance. When one party to a real estate contract does not meet the contractual obligations, it may be possible for a specific performance action to force the individual to meet the obligation. Let us guide you though this complicated process.
Methods for resolving disputes
We can help you resolve many real estate disputes, including title issues, using either mediation or arbitration. These resolution techniques are often quicker and less costly than traditional litigation. Mediation or arbitration is not appropriate, however, if one party has been accused of criminal conduct. If the dispute involves complex legal issues, it might be best to consult an attorney with our firm and begin the process of litigation.
