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 litigation to resolve disputes. We help with many different types of real estate disputes, and some of the most common issues typically include the following:
- Breach of Contract. Any lease or purchase and sale agreement ordinarily constitutes a form of a contract. When one of the parties does not fulfill agreed-upon obligations, that party may be in breach of the contract. We can assist you with taking the necessary actions to protect your rights and remedy your loss if this happens to you.
- 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, breach of contract, misrepresentation and non-disclosure.
- Seller Misrepresentation/Non-Disclosure. Disputes between a buyer and a seller of real estate often occur when the seller fails to provide relevant information about the property’s condition, and the buyer learns of the information or defective condition after closing when damages become noticeable and the buyer suffers a loss. These types of disputes are often complex and may include complicated insurance issues, policy disputes, expert analysis and reports, and costly mitigation and repair expenses. If you encounter a similar situation, it is important to seek advice from an attorney at the onset to preserve your available remedies and reduce the financial burdens and emotional stress often associated with these types of disputes.
- 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, through structured negotiations and Alternative Dispute Resolution, such as mediation. These resolution techniques are often quicker and less costly than traditional litigation. If the dispute involves complex legal issues, it might be best to consult an attorney with our firm facilitate structured negotiations, begin the ADR process, or, if necessary, commence litigation proceedings.
