On Behalf of | Jun 30, 2023 | Real Estate Disputes

Real estate disputes can be very stressful, so it is generally best to address them early. It is possible to resolve some disagreements by civilly discussing the issue, but there might be times when you need to involve the law. The following are signs that litigation is likely your best option for resolving a real estate dispute.

Communication no longer works

If the other parties involved in the conflict no longer want to communicate or they threaten to sue instead of talking about the issue, then taking things to court might be your next best step. Litigation generally allows all parties to discuss the dispute in an impartial environment that does not tolerate hostility.

You have no more alternatives

Appearing in court can be anxiety-inducing for many people, so they resort to other approaches to resolve conflict. But if, after trying to compromise and appease, the dispute remains, then you might consider going to court instead.

You are fine with the public knowing

Court records are generally public documents, so anybody who asks will likely be able to view the circumstances and outcomes of your real estate dispute if you choose to litigate. Your case may even become a precedent for similar disputes in the future.

Your lawyer advises you to litigate

Attorneys understand real estate law, so they are usually the best people to turn to for legal resolutions to conflicts. Your lawyer can assess your situation, tell you if you have a strong case and advise you on how to start the litigation process.

Real estate disputes can put you in a precarious situation. A real estate attorney can advocate for you in court and help resolve the conflict while protecting your rights.
