If you find yourself dealing with a real estate dispute, the legal team at Silverman Law Office, PLLC can help.

Types Of Real Estate Disputes Our Firm Handles

Real estate disputes can – and often do – end up in real estate litigation. When issues do arise, it is critical to try to work out an amicable solution with the other party in order to avoid the need to go to court. This is where having a seasoned Montana real estate litigation attorney representing you can make all the difference. At our firm, we have built a solid reputation in the legal community for being skilled negotiators, however, we are also known for our strong and extensive litigation experience.

Some of the more common types of real estate dispute cases we have successfully handled include the following:

  • Breach of contract – Any type of real estate transaction requires a contract between the buyer and the seller. That contract will stipulate all the responsibilites each party has in the transaction. This includes the purchase prices, the deadline for closing the sale, property issues the seller needs to address, etc. If either party fails to fulfill its obligations, this can result in a breach of contract. The breach can cause financial losses for the other party and those losses can be recovered in litigation.
  • Boundry disputes – It is not uncommon for two neighboring property owners to believe they both have ownership of a certain area of land. There may even be fencing or a structure in the disputed area. In some cases, the parties end up in litigation because they cannot resolve the dispute through negotiation.   
  • Title disputes – Whenever you are purchasing a piece of property, it is critical to have a professional conduct a title search to ensure there is no question that the potential seller actually owns the property. It is also important to be aware of any easements on the property that could interfere with ownership. Otherwise, a buyer may eventually find themselves in court trying to prove the property they purchase is actually theirs if another party shows up claiming ownership.
  • Mechanic or property liens – If the owner of a property allegedly owes another party money, that party can take the steps to place a lien on the property which can result in all kinds of legal problems, including being unable to refinance or sell the property. A lien can be place on the property for failure to pay municipal, state, or federal taxes, or by another creditor who claims they are owed funds the owner has failed to pay. A contractor can place a mechanic’s lien on the property if they have not been paid for work and/or materials on the property. This includes subcontractors hired but not paid by a general contractor the property owner hired and paid.
