Reasons for Real Estate Litigation
There are many different reasons why someone might become involved in real estate litigation. Here are ten common reasons:
- Property boundary disputes
Disagreements over the location of property lines, easements, or access rights to a particular piece of land can lead to real estate litigation.
- Property ownership disputes
Legal disputes can arise over the ownership of a particular property, particularly when multiple parties claim the same piece of land.
- Breach of contract claims
Real estate litigation can be initiated when one party to a real estate contract fails to meet their contractual obligations, such as failing to complete a real estate sale or make agreed-upon repairs to a property.
- Construction defects
When defects in construction work are discovered, litigation may be necessary to hold the responsible party accountable and recover damages.
- Landlord-tenant disputes
Disputes between landlords and tenants can lead to litigation, particularly in cases where one party fails to meet their contractual obligations or violates a lease agreement.
- Zoning and land use disputes
Disputes over zoning laws, land use restrictions, or development plans can lead to real estate litigation.
- Environmental issues
When environmental contamination is discovered on a property, litigation may be necessary to hold responsible parties accountable for cleanup costs and other damages.
- Homeowner Association (HOA) disputes
Disputes between homeowners and HOAs can lead to litigation, particularly in cases where an HOA is accused of mismanaging funds or failing to maintain common areas.
- Real estate fraud
When a real estate transaction involves fraud, misrepresentation, or nondisclosure of important facts, litigation may be necessary to recover damages.
- Mortgage disputes
Legal disputes can arise between lenders and borrowers over issues such as foreclosure, default, or other issues related to mortgage agreements.
These are just a few of the many reasons why someone might become involved in real estate legal action. Whatever the cause, it is important to seek the advice and assistance of an experienced real estate attorney to protect your rights and achieve the best possible outcome.
