What is Real Estate Litigation?

Real estate law covers an extensive legal area and is regulated by federal and state statutes. It is also governed by common law with many overlaps with contract law. Real estate litigation may be the result of a wide range of disputes involving property matters. These cases may involve landlords and tenants, builders and homebuyers or homeowners and insurance providers. Both residential and commercial property may be the subject of the disagreement. Because real estate litigation can cover a myriad of dispute issues, it is important to hire experienced legal representation to protect your rights during your case.

Are There Different Types of Real Estate Litigation?

At Marshack Hays, we have experience with a wide range of real estate litigation including the following issues:

  • Breach of construction contracts or construction defects
  • Default on the provisions of a lease
  • Disputes involving property boundaries
  • Disagreements over insurance liability claims
  • Foreclosure and lender liability
  • Breach of real estate contracts
  • Valuation of commercial property
  • Real estate fraud and professional malpractice

A common example of real estate litigation involves clients who are under contract to buy or sell a house state that they have changed their mind and want out of the deal. A well-drafted real estate contract is not easy to get out of, and can be costly to the client if it is not handled correctly.

Real estate disputes can be stressful and expensive for those involved. Navigating the complex road of real estate law alone is typically ill-advised and overwhelming for those that are not well-versed. If the matter cannot be resolved between the parties, the case may require trial so that the court can make a binding and final decision in the dispute.
