Avoiding Common Real Estate Litigation Issues

Posted on August 23rd, 2023

When it comes to real estate, even the smallest discrepancies or misunderstandings can lead to significant disputes and litigation. As a property owner or someone involved in real estate transactions, it is crucial to take proactive steps to avoid these common real estate litigation issues.

One of the primary reasons for real estate litigation is breach of contract. This occurs when one party fails to uphold the terms and conditions outlined in a real estate agreement. To prevent this, it is essential to have a well-drafted and comprehensive contract that clearly states the expectations and responsibilities of all parties involved. Make sure to review the contract thoroughly and seek legal advice to ensure that you fully understand the terms and conditions before signing.

Another common cause of real estate litigation is property boundary disputes. These disputes often arise when there is a lack of clear and accurate property descriptions in the deed or when neighbors disagree on the boundaries of their respective properties. To avoid these disputes, it is recommended to have a professional surveyor determine the exact boundaries of your property and ensure that they are correctly described in the deed.

Zoning and land use disputes are also prevalent in real estate litigation. Zoning laws regulate how a property can be used and developed. To avoid disputes related to zoning and land use, it is important to research and understand the zoning laws and regulations in your area before purchasing or developing a property.

Disclosure issues are another common cause of real estate litigation. Sellers are required to disclose any known defects or issues with the property to potential buyers. Failure to disclose such information can result in legal action. To prevent disclosure issues, sellers should be transparent and provide all necessary information to buyers, and buyers should conduct thorough inspections and due diligence before purchasing a property.

Tenant-landlord disputes are also common in real estate litigation. These disputes often arise from issues such as non-payment of rent, property damage, or violation of lease terms. To avoid tenant-landlord disputes, it is essential to have a well-drafted lease agreement that clearly outlines the rights and responsibilities of both parties and to address any issues or concerns promptly.
