Real estate disputes are something no one wants to be involved with. While some people attempt to resolve these disputes on their own, this may not always be the best course of action. Often in real estate disputes, both parties have something to lose and the most effective approach is a proactive one. Hiring a Florida real estate litigation lawyer can help you get the best possible result from a dispute. Here’s what an attorney can help you with.
Landlord/tenant disputes are not uncommon in Florida, and most people try to deal with these issues on their own. While some things can be resolved between a landlord and their tenant, other issues are much more complex. Evictions, destruction of property, or failure to keep the property livable are issues that could become costly if an attorney is not involved.
Real Estate Contract Disputes
Real estate contracts are the bread and butter of any transaction, regardless of whether you’re buying or selling property. When there’s a dispute between a buyer and a seller, the transaction can become stalled and in some cases, the transaction may fail altogether. If you are dealing with a real estate contract dispute, an attorney can help you understand the terms of your contract and will defend your best interests.
Trespassing is often thought of as a harmless crime, however, there are instances where trespassing causes a lot of damage. Additionally, trespassing can invade your privacy and make you feel less safe at home. A lawyer can help you resolve trespassing disputes and recover any damages you incurred to your property as a result of a trespasser.
Zoning laws can be difficult to understand. An attorney can help you bring a dispute against someone who is using your property outside of zoning regulations, or they can help you get a property zoned for what you want to use it for.
If you are having a new property constructed and have a dispute with your general contractor or one of the other contractors working on your project, a real estate litigation attorney can represent your interests. Your lawyer will work towards the goal of finishing the construction properly, according to your agreement, in a timely fashion.
