What Happens In Real Estate Litigation?

Real estate cases include contracts, property damages, foreclosures and other issues. Property disputes involve such questions: Who owns the land? What are the easements? Who can develop it? At Bernhardt Riley, Attorneys at Law, PLLC, we can help you answer these questions and resolve legal disputes.

Our attorneys can help you resolve a wide range of real estate litigation disputes, including:

  • Breach of contract – Real estate disputes often trigger breaches of contractual claims. The claims are usually triggered by an unsatisfactory party’s performance under the contractual terms. The outcome of a claim may involve obtaining money or providing the property under agreed terms.
  • Co-owner disputes – Commercial property usually belongs to several people. Whenever the co-owners disagree over how they should maintain the land, they can face a conflict of opinion. Often there is a dispute over landlords, rental charges and other issues.
  • Real estate fraud – Sometimes the transaction isn’t quite as it looks. Generally speaking, when someone selling a house states all the electrical and plumbing is working correctly you could have to resort to legal action to resolve a commercial lease dispute. This sort of statement can be misleading because it’s not true.
  • Construction litigation – We have represented developers, contractors and homeowners in construction litigation concerns.
  • Property and land disputes: We have represented property owners in a variety of disputes including boundary disputes, easement disputes and title disputes.
  • Foreclosure defense: We have represented homeowners and businesses in foreclosure proceedings.
  • Construction defects: We have represented homeowners and businesses in construction defect litigation.
  • Landlord/tenant disputes: We have represented landlords and tenants in a variety of disputes, including eviction proceedings, lease disputes and repair or maintenance issues.
  • HOA and COA disputes: We have represented homeowners and businesses in disputes with their Homeowners’ Associations and Condominium Owners’ Association disputes.
  • Mortgage foreclosure: We have represented homeowners and businesses in mortgage foreclosure proceedings.
  • Zoning and land use: We have represented property owners in zoning and land use.
  • Title disputes: We have represented property owners in title disputes.
  • Quiet title actions: We have represented property owners in quiet title actions.

While you can resolve some of these disputes and concerns through negotiation, sometimes, litigation becomes the only option to resolve a dispute in your favor. You can trust us to build a strong case on your behalf to protect your interests and rights and help you meet your goals.
