Some of the most common types of real estate disputes are:
Breach of contract. Any sale, purchase or lease is a type of contract. When a party to a contract doesn’t fulfill their obligations they may be found in breach of contract. When a party has a correctly drafted contract, they may seek damages for losses resulting from breach of the contract.
Boundary disputes. These occur when boundaries aren’t properly registered or when a property line supersedes the lawful line. A real estate lawyer researches the property’s boundary to confirm whether there are areas of possible disagreement.
Specific performance. On occasion a party in a real estate contract doesn’t perform something in the agreement. A performance action directs the party to perform the obligations in the contract. For example, you may seek a court order that forces a seller who refuses the sale to release the property.
Real estate fraud. If a party in a negotiation makes false representations and causes injury, it is real estate fraud. As an example, consider if a real estate agent withholds information that threatens the success of a development. Certainly, that would serve as grounds for pursuing damages.
Disputes among co-owners. Sometimes property that more than one person owns may be the subject of a dispute. For instance, if co-tenants or partners conflict over the cost of repairs, rent or other issues. The services of lawyer experienced in real estate litigation can help resolve these matters.
Title issues and insurance. A title must be “clean” for buyers. There are numerous ways to establish that a title is clear that we can recommend.
