Common Types of Real Estate Disputes
Buyers and sellers have obligations to one another as they move through a proposed real estate transaction. These responsibilities should be defined in the purchase and sale agreement and honored throughout the closing process, which will ideally go smoothly and expeditiously. Unexpected complications or malicious actions can jeopardize the transaction, create conflict, and potentially warrant litigation. Disputes can also emerge in other settings if there are disagreements over ownership of a property or between landlords and tenants.
We are prepared to assist you with a wide range of disputes, including:
- Breaches of Contract. A buyer or seller could breach the purchase and sale agreement if they fail to carry out any of the responsibilities contained in the agreement.
- Breaches of Fiduciary Duty. A breach of fiduciary duty could occur if a real estate agent acts negligently or puts their interests ahead of the person they are meant to be representing.
- Title Disputes. Though a buyer may perform title checks, purchase title insurance, and make efforts to cure any known defects, another party may appear at any point – even after the transaction has closed – and claim some ownership over a property. Conflicts could involve disputes over easements, liens, boundaries, or even outright ownership.
- Failure to Disclose a Defect. Sellers and landlords are generally required to disclose known problems, or “defects,” to prospective buyers and tenants, respectively. Disputes can emerge if defects are later discovered that a seller knew or should have reasonably known about.
- Landlord-Tenant Disputes. Conflicts may involve nonpayment of rent, the return of security deposits, property damage, habitability issues, noise concerns, safety disclosures, repairs (including who pays for them), and breaking a lease.

Q:Why Do I Need a Lawyer to Help with My Commercial Real Estate Transaction?
If your business is going to flourish, you will need legal professionals to be there for you at all stages of the commercial real estate progress. You should assume that the other party in a real estate dispute will have considerable legal resources. When you hire your own experienced attorney, you get an advocate who can research your options and help you understand your rights when an obstacle appears. A lawyer can assist you in negotiations and make every effort to avoid litigation. They can also aggressively fight for you if a court battle becomes unavoidable.
Q:How Should I Go About Business Planning Before Pursuing a Commercial Real Estate Transaction?
Before you and a group of individuals come together to purchase real estate, get legal advice on how you want to form your business, from a simple partnership to a corporation. Even family members who are bringing resources together to make an investment in real estate as a commercial operation should have a legal advocate to establish legal protections and help facilitate healthy relations in the long run. Setting up your business correctly before you purchase real estate will typically make things much easier down the road.
