When Real Estate Litigation Arises

Disputes regarding property during the purchase phase, like partnership altercations, failure to abide by the lease, fraudulent actions, and nondisclosure or misrepresentation of the property’s status are all considered under real estate litigation. Whether it be intentional or through pure negligence, real estate litigation is common due to failures in keeping with the many terms and conditions that come with purchasing land or buildings. If you find yourself in an altercation, you can rely on the Tampa real estate attorneys at Heller Law to help you navigate any conflict.


Name Your Legal Dispute

When it comes to real estate, many different types of disputes can arise. These are among the most common issues, all of which we specialize in at Heller Law:


Contract Breaches

During the finalization of a purchase, it is absolutely necessary to set the terms and conditions in a contract for all parties to sign. If any of the signers fail to abide by the contract in any way, it can cause a dispute which can then lead to a court hearing.


Faulty or Defective Property

The seller is obligated to disclose certain defects or other faults with the property to the buyer. When these imperfections are kept in the dark until after the purchase, this can be cause for a dispute. This is especially the case with faults that pose a risk to someone’s health or well-being.


Negligence or Breach of Duty

A realtor must perform in the buyer’s best interest during every step of the sale. This means offering assistance without any ulterior motives. Negligence by a real estate agent that causes harm to the buyer can be reason for a legal dispute.


Boundary Disputes

Every property has set boundary lines to let the owner know exactly where their territory ends and begins. This can be a big deal when you have neighbors, making it essential to establish clear property lines in the contract. Inaccurate or inconsistent details regarding property boundaries can cause civil lawsuits if a person ends up intruding on another person’s land.


Specific Performance Failure

Sometimes the agreeing parties to a contract set unique or unusual terms to uphold. As long as all signers consent to these terms, a party failing to keep their end of the bargain can lead to a civil lawsuit.


Implied Warranty Violations

In the state of Florida, there are certain warranties that go without saying despite what’s on the actual written contract. This is designed to protect buyers from clearly unreasonable situations, such as a structure not being habitable enough to safely house a living being.
