The real estate market is a place where many individuals and businesses have invested significant time and resources. For families, this is often their largest asset and can serve as the basis for eventual retirement. For companies, a physical location can be the heart of an operation and the main source of income. Sadly, disputes over real estate rights and purchases can often result in the need for litigation. When this happens, having a skilled real estate attorney by your side is crucial.
An Oakland real estate lawyer at Estavillo Law Group is prepared to protect your rights. This includes explaining the laws that control your case, gathering evidence that supports your position, always focusing on your goals and representing your interests during settlement talks, and presenting your case in court, if nececcary.
PERSONALIZED APPROACH, SUPERIOR SERVICE, AND A FAIR PRICE
Unfortunately, sometimes disagreements arise involving real property. When disputes involving real estate arise, it’s very important that you have an experienced Oakland real estate litigation attorney representing you from the very beginning.
Our firm has a strong background, expertise, and training in Real Estate Law. In our combined 40 years of litigation experience, our committed lawyers in the Bay Area have helped individuals including landlords, tenants, sellers, and buyers settle real estate disputes.
With a majority of real estate property in the Bay Area carrying a value in excess of $1,000,000, it is no surprise that disputes are common. Perhaps the most direct example of a dispute is those that arise during the purchase or sale of land. When a party is attempting to sell land, they must offer a valid deed to the purchaser. However, these deeds may guarantee that the property is free from encumbrance or make no such promises. If a party purchases land and later finds that there is a claim on the property, this is a common reason for real estate litigation.
Disputes that may arise during the sale of property can also include:
Real estate litigation may also become necessary during the course of typical ownership. This may involve arguments over the fair use of land, concerns over maintenance and improvements, or even parties making a claim that they have rights under a prior deed. An Oakland real estate litigation attorney could help identify the reason for a dispute, gather evidence concerning the matter, and protect the rights of clients every step of the way.
When many people think about the term “litigation,” they imagine arguing a case in court before a jury. While this outcome is certainly possible, in reality, litigation begins as soon as there is a disagreement between two parties. As a result, hiring a seasoned legal professional to handle a case as soon as possible could bring a resolution to a dispute at an earlier date.
A real estate litigation lawyer in Oakland could help bring a case to a close through negotiations and settlement talks. This could help bring a resolution without the high costs and time commitments that come from taking a case to court. At the same time, they work with clients to understand their needs, where they are willing to be flexible, and where they must stand firm. Ideally, this can result in productive talks that are satisfactory to both parties.
In situations where taking a case to court does become necessary, a dedicated attorney is ready to provide key guidance. If a client needs to initiate a case in court, they can identify the relevant cause of action and submit detailed complaints in accordance with local law. For example, most real estate disputes are disagreements over contracts. California Civil Code § 337 says that people seeking relief must bring a case to court within four years of the date of the breach. An Oakland property litigation lawyer is ready to do what is necessary to protect the rights of clients.
Disputes concerning real estate can have a significant financial impact on individuals and businesses alike. If there is a dispute and it appears that a compromise is not possible, it may be necessary to initiate litigation. This could mean participating in settlement or mediation talks or even bringing a formal lawsuit to civil court.
An Oakland real estate lawyer may be able to help. They are prepared to take the lead in settlement talks that could help to avoid costly court cases. However, if the case does go to court, they will take every step necessary to protect your rights. Contact us now to learn more.
