Most Common Real Estate Litigation Issues
Over the years, we have litigated and resolved many different and unusual real estate disputes. One of the most common areas of contention between the parties to a real estate transaction can be a contract dispute or disclosure issue. Ultimately, when one party is not happy with the transaction, they tend to be more likely to sue. However, many of these matters are frivolous and can be resolved quickly in litigation.
Another very common issue that arises is partnership disputes or ownership disputes. When real estate is increasing in value, as it has historically, there is a tremendous financial incentive for each partner or partial owner to argue that they own more. This can unfortunately lead to litigation, but it is the type of situation that lends itself well to mediation.
Finally, real estate fraud has become more and more common. With so many people struggling out there, unscrupulous parties tend to target real estate because it is so infrequently monitored by property owners. A fraudulent deed could be filed and not even discovered by the true owner for many years. In these instances, we can usually resolve the matter quickly with a quiet title action or similar court procedure.
