If you’re purchasing a property or own a property, you may find yourself in the middle of a real estate dispute.
A real estate attorney can help you resolve disputes and minimize the impact of the litigation on your finances and overall operations.
Situations That Lead to Real Estate or Civil Litigation
There are numerous situations that can lead to litigation. If you have a dispute about your real estate contract, litigation can resolve the dispute and help you uphold the terms of the contract.
For example, if you want to buy a property and sign a contract to do so, if the seller doesn’t follow the contract’s terms, this is a breach of contract that calls for litigation.
Or, if you’ve sold a property and the buyer claims you didn’t disclose a defect, you’ll need to respond to any litigation they bring against you.
Civil litigation refers to lawsuits where one party claims that the other party has committed a wrong against them.
However, the wrong isn’t necessarily a crime or it might be difficult to prove a crime occurred, making civil litigation an option for recourse.
How a Real Estate Lawyer Can Help
A litigation attorney is valuable for resolving your real estate disputes. Your attorney will work to acquire important information and evidence related to the case via the discovery process.
During the pre-trial phase, your attorney will develop a strategy for the case and retain any necessary witnesses.
Your lawyer will represent you when the case goes to trial. Or, if you’re interested in settling, your attorney can assist with your settlement negotiations. If you decide to appeal, your attorney will handle the steps required to launch an appeal.
A real estate attorney has the skills, training, and experience to ensure you get the best possible outcome.
