For most people the purchase or sale of a home is the largest financial transaction they will ever participate in. There is great financial risk in buying or selling real estate and it is important that all parties are protected in the process.

Boundaries and Easements
Boundary disputes are disagreements about who owns a piece of property and the amount of area the property covers. Often title and boundary disputes arise between neighbors, especially when title and boundary lines were recorded a long time ago.
An easement is the right of another person to use your land for a specific reason. Disputes may arise as to the extent and purpose of an easement.

Contractor disputes are a headache for all involved and typically result in lost time and money for all parties. We represent both contractors and homeowners in these disputes, working with our client to bring about a quick resolution for all involved.
Failure to Disclose
When it comes to real estate, disclosure is a very important aspect of any real estate transaction. The law requires certain disclosures be made prior to a sale, and far to often these disclosures are not made, resulting in financial losses to the purchaser.
If you purchased a property and a material defect was not disclosed to you at time of purchase you have legal recourses available to help you recover the financial damages you have suffered due to the non-disclosure.
Real Property Contracts
A real estate contract is a contract between parties for the purchase and sale, exchange, or other conveyance of real estate. Often disputes over the contract do not come up until years after the contract was executed.
We can help by reviewing your contract before you sign, ensuring that your rights are protected and helping to prevent future disputes.
