Real Estate Litigation
Real estate litigation is a broad area of law that encompasses any legal dispute involving real estate. This can include disputes between buyers and sellers, landlords and tenants, developers and contractors, and neighbors. Real estate litigation can also involve disputes over property ownership, easements, zoning, and other land use issues.
Some of the most common types of real estate litigation include:
- Breach of contract disputes, such as when a buyer or seller fails to uphold their obligations under a purchase agreement
- Fraud and misrepresentation disputes, such as when a buyer or seller knowingly makes false statements about the property
- Title disputes, such as when there is a question about who owns the property
- Easement disputes, such as when there is a disagreement about the scope of an easement or how it can be used
- Boundary disputes, such as when there is a disagreement about where the property line is
- Construction defect disputes, such as when a new home or commercial building is built with defects
- Zoning and land use disputes, such as challenges to government zoning decisions
Real estate litigation can be complex and expensive, so it is important to consult with an experienced real estate attorney if you are involved in a dispute. A real estate attorney can help you understand your rights and options, and can represent you in court if necessary.
Here are some tips for avoiding real estate litigation:
- Get everything in writing, including any oral agreements.
- Keep good records of all communications and transactions.
- If you have a dispute with the other party, try to resolve it amicably first. If you cannot resolve the dispute on your own, consult with a real estate attorney.
