Beware of co-owner, title and deed disputes

On Behalf of | Aug 11, 2017 | Real Estate Transactions

As a property owner, you never know if a problem could present itself in the future. One of the most common real estate disputes is that between co-owners of a piece of real estate, such as unmarried couples or siblings who recently inherited a home from a parent.

While this is never an easy spot to find yourself in, there are solutions to every problem. For example, you may be able to sell the property, split the proceeds and then move on with your life. Or maybe you find that buying out the other party would be in your best interest.

Some of the most common co-owner, title and deed disputes include:

  • Accounting actions
  • Declaratory judgments
  • Preclude claims
  • Adverse possession litigation
  • Fraudulent transfer of deeds
  • Air rights
  • Nominee interests
  • Adjacent property use
