Contract Dispute

Contract disputes in real estate can take many forms.  Some of the more common disputes include:

  • Purchase and Sale Disputes: Disagreements may arise between buyers and sellers regarding the terms of a real estate transaction. This can include issues related to non-disclosure of property defects, misrepresentation of property information, disputes over purchase price, failure to close the transaction, or other breach of contract.
  • Boundary and Easement Disputes: Boundary disputes involve disagreements over the location of property boundaries. Easement disputes typically arise when there are conflicts regarding the right to use or access a particular portion of a property by a third party or neighboring property owner.
  • Landlord-Tenant Disputes: These disputes can involve issues such as non-payment of rent, lease violations, property damage, security deposit disputes, eviction proceedings, or other breach of a lease agreement.

When small disputes escalate, the result can be the threat of litigation or a party actually filing a court case. Many contracts allow for alternative dispute resolution rather than costly litigation. Throughout the dispute resolution process, an attorney can provide you with legal advice, answer your questions and address your concerns. An attorney can explain the potential risks, costs, and benefits associated with various courses of action, enabling you to make informed decisions.

If you have suffered financial losses or damages as a result of the dispute, we can help assess the extent of your loss and work toward maximizing your recovery. We can also help identify potential claims, calculate damages, and pursue the appropriate legal remedies.
