Many attorneys practice in the area of real estate law, but there is a limited subset of those attorneys who spend significant time in a court room. Moreover, general commercial litigators may have extensive experience in a courtroom, but may not understand the unique aspects of a real estate transaction. Considering real estate is often a relatively large asset, it is important to find an attorney to handle your matter who has courtroom experience specifically in the areas of real estate litigation. I have the experience both in the courtroom and managing other attorneys nationwide through the complex world of real estate litigation.
What types of real estate matters are litigated?
It would be impossible to create a comprehensive list of real estate litigation matters, but some examples of real estate litigation include when:
- A seller fails to deliver possession of a home that is under contract
- After purchasing a new home, the buyer discovers that there are issues that were not properly disclosed by the seller
- A tenant fails to pay rent or causes damage to a rental property
- There is a break in the chain of title for the property
- A borrower fails make payments on their loan and you seek to foreclose on the property
- An HOA member fails to pay assessments and the HOA seeks to foreclosure on the property
- The HOA has filed suit against a homeowner for a violation of the HOA rules and regulations
- A contractor failed to perform under the terms of the contract and refuses to return the deposit.
- A homeowner has failed to make the final payment to a contractor and a mechanic’s lien foreclosure is required.
