Real Estate Litigation between Buyer and Seller
You recently bought a property, and it has a problem that was not disclosed during the purchase and sale. Either through misrepresentation or fraud, the seller did not disclose a key defect in your new property. If this sounds like your case, North City Law can help. We resolve real estate litigation through intensive investigation, expert analysis, and vigorous representation during litigation.
Types of Real Estate Cases
- Fraud– Real estate fraud occurs when a seller intentionally did not disclose a problem with a property in order to induce a buyer to buy the property. We help new property owners obtain an expert opinion, and then act accordingly. Our lawyers can investigate and advocate for victims of real estate fraud on an hourly basis.
- Misrepresentation – Real estate misrepresentation occurs when a seller provides misleading information about the property to the buyer, either negligently or intentionally. Our lawyers can advocate for you on an hourly basis.
- Adverse Possession – When a driveway, tree, or other change in the property makes the property line unclear, an adverse possession claim may be ripe. We can assess the situation and determine whether further action is required on an hourly basis.
- Covenants and Easements – A written or unwritten promise to allow use of a property has come into sharp focus. Whether a practice has been abandoned, neighbors have altered the agreement over time (through conduct or in writing), or the neighborhood wants to change the character of the original neighborhood plan (called a plat), a real property lawyer can be a big help. Contact us to determine whether we are the right fit to help you resolve the changes.
Enforcing Rights under a Purchase and Sale Agreement
Once you have a signed contract there still may be future challenges.
Title Considerations during Real Estate Disputes
A deceased person’s name is on title. A defunct trust owns an interest in land. A name of an owner has changed. Many situations arise where title must be cleared before initiating a dispute. Our lawyers have seen many of these scenarios and can help you identify and resolve the issues before formally initiating any changes through the courts or legal agreements.
