When buying or selling real estate, you hope that you never run into a serious dispute. The same holds true if you're in the position of a landlord or tenant.
Unfortunately, especially in and around cities like New York City, this is not always the case. Instead, real estate transactions go bad from time to time. If this happens, you need to better understand your situation and the steps you can take to find a resolution.
Some of the most common types of real estate disputes include:
-- Breach of contract
-- Recovery of down payment
-- Recovery of earnest money deposit
-- Fraud or nondisclosure
-- Quiet title actions
-- Declaratory judgment actions
-- Distressed real estate
-- Constructive trusts
-- Construction litigation
-- Contractor contracts
Even when both parties have the best intentions, a real estate transaction can take a turn for the worse.
