Real Estate Litigation Cases We Handle

Real Estate Acquisition
Buying and selling real estate should be straightforward, but there are numerous disputes that can arise during this process, which have the potential to derail your deal. We can help resolve all types of real estate litigation issues relative to purchase and sale agreements, including for sale by owner, development agreements, option agreements, and land use and zoning disputes.
Property Construction and Renovation
Our firm also steps in and assists with litigation involving construction and renovation projects. These issues might involve problems with contract and subcontractor agreements and related liens.

Real Estate Agents and Brokers
Buying and renting a property is stressful enough. Individuals and businesses trust real estate agents and brokers to guide them through this process and uphold certain ethical standards. When an agent or broker breaks established regulations and you’ve been harmed, you may have the right to seek recovery. We also assist with land sale contracts.
Litigation Involving Banks
Our experienced litigators have helped settle and litigate disputes related to promissory notes, commercial loan agreements, deeds of trust, trustee sales, personal guarantees, assignments of rent, and deficiency actions.
Disputes between landlords and tenants are common, and it often takes the intervention of a third party to get them resolved. We have helped clients deal with issues related to eviction proceedings, lease interpretation, and other disputes.
When something is holding up your closing, this can be frustrating. Our real estate attorneys can help resolve title disputes concerning property lines, easements, adverse possession, trespass, quiet title, and more.
Our firm routinely represents parties involved in homeowners and condo association disputes. These can arise from the simple enforcement of dues to more complex issues such as evictions and criminal conduct.
Negligent design is a legal issue that can impact a variety of industries. Building codes address what is considered sound design, and some projects slip through the cracks, creating issues relative to accessibility, structural integrity, and environmental impact. This can affect the owners and tenants of both new and existing properties, and litigation can be a complex matter.
These are only a few of the most common types of disputes involving real estate. These are only a few of the most common types of disputes involving real estate. Our attorneys have the background and resources to handle even the most obscure issue, and we urge you to contact us about our services.
