Tampa Real Estate Litigation Attorney

In many cases, real estate is the most valuable piece of property a person will ever own. Real estate has such a high value because there is only so much of it and the amount of people that need to use it and work and live within it continues to increase. With the population increasing more and more every year, the value of real estate has skyrocketed over recent years. Unfortunately, as the value of real estate rises, litigation disputes are becoming more and more common. Below, our Tampa real estate litigation attorney outlines the most common types of disputes we handle.

Breach of Contract

The purchase, sale, and lease of real estate relies on strong contracts. Real estate contracts the rights and duties of each party involved. For example, a purchase agreement will outline the terms of the sale and certain conditions the buyer must meet. Any time one party fails to meet their terms of the contract, it can result in real estate litigation.

Easement Disputes

An easement provides a person other than the owner of the real estate to enter the property to use it for a specific purpose. For example, if a path or road crosses a person’s property, people may need to use it to access a public landmark, beach, or main road. If there is a breach in the easement agreement, it can result in real estate litigation.

Breach of Duty

A breach of duty refers to a real estate agent who acted negligently, or carelessly, and caused harm to their client as a result. Real estate agents must work in the best interests of their clients. For example, a real estate agent may know certain information that would discourage their client from purchasing the property. However, prioritizing their own commission over the client’s best interests, they do not inform the client about this information. That is negligence that could result in real estate litigation.

Failure to Disclose

Like real estate agents, sellers of real estate must also provide full disclosure about the property, including any defect it contains, to potential buyers. If a purchaser discovers a defect after purchasing the property, and they were not told about it beforehand, the buyer can file a lawsuit against the seller for failing to disclose the important information.

Eminent Domain

Eminent domain refers to when a government entity takes private property from someone for public use. Property owners are compensated for the property, but the amount of compensation is not always enough, or there can be a dispute regarding whether the government needs the property for public use. These issues and more can result in real estate litigation.
