Real Estate Litigation

If you own real estate, you have probably taken considerable risk, expended a great deal of effort and have spent a significant amount of money to take possession of your property. If your property is damaged, threatened or encumbered, you deserve experienced, effective legal representation to enforce your property rights.

What real estate issues do you help with?

  • If another party has encumbered your title, I can bring an action to quiet title in order to establish your claim, thus "quieting" challenges to your claim to the title.
  • If your ownership interest in personal property, equipment or a business is threatened, I can file suit to protect your assets.
  • If you are the victim of fraud, including mortgage and title fraud, I can represent you to obtain funds and establish ownership of purchased property.
  • A real estate attorney can also ensure that land is properly used according to zoning laws and can help ensure that you do not pay penalties or fines for improper use of your property.

When should I hire a real estate attorney?

You do not have to hire a real estate attorney for all transactions, but it may be a good idea, especially for homebuyers. A real estate attorney can review the transaction history of the property and be sure that it's actually eligible for sale. In addition, a good real estate attorney can review the sales contract to be sure it's fair to all the involved parties.

What kind of real estate cases have you handled?

I have handled several cases involving title actions and other real estate litigation including:

One client failed to receive her disclosure papers at the time of her residential real estate closing and later learned that her broker had transferred the property to a third party. I am currently pursuing an aggressive case for fraud.

In another case, my client purchased property which the seller and title stated had been legally subdivided. The client later learned that the property had not been subdivided and was subsequently worth far less. I negotiated a settlement favoring our client.

A client wished to establish a mixed-use, residential and commercial "safe house" as an extension of the church he founded. The neighborhood in which the safe house is to be established attempted to stop its development. I brought the matter to the city council and argued successfully for a conditional-use permit, allowing our client to proceed with his plans.
