Acquiring and developing real property is a traditional way to accumulate and build wealth. The benefits of owning real property can quickly dissipate, however, in the event of a property dispute.
Real property litigation may arise between a buyer and seller or two adjacent property owners. It can also involve multiple other parties like partners, lenders, developers, management companies, government agencies, construction companies, subcontractors, and insurers.
Real property litigation comes in many forms, but some of the most common types of property disputes involve the following:
- Boundary or easement disputes
- Contract disputes, including purchase agreements, leases, and operating agreements
- Co-owner disputes over management decisions or even a division of the property (partition actions)
- Disputes with homeowners’ associations
- Disputes with contractors and subcontractors related to the construction and building process
- Eminent domain or condemnation proceedings involving the government
- Insurance issues, including coverage disputes
- Nuisance and negligence action
- Title issues, including quiet title actions and disputes with mortgage companies over outstanding debts
- Zoning and land use issues
Property disputes can develop and advance rapidly, and they require an individualized action plan to ensure you achieve the best possible outcome while pursuing and defending your interests.
