Common Real Estate Legal Claims
According to the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, an affiliate of the National Association of Industrial and Office Parks (NAIOP), Florida ranks fifth in the U.S. for all commercial real estate development. With increased activity comes a wide range of real estate legal claims.
Understanding the nature of real estate disputes may help you decide whether or not your claim could warrant legal action. Some common legal claims surrounding real estate include, but are not limited to:
- Discrimination: Discrimination is typically defined as unfair or unjust action against an individual due to sex, race, gender, or ethnicity. Discrimination is illegal and grounds for legal action through the U.S. Government.
- Issues with contractors: Some property owners rely on the work of contractors for construction, maintenance, and other services related to their property. If a contractor fails to provide an adequate or promised service that affects property value or the ability for the property to function as desired, this could lead to real estate litigation.
- Fraud: Fraudulent activity is not uncommon in real estate transactions. There may be a tremendous amount of money exchanged throughout the process, and all parties involved should be honest about the condition and expectations of a property for an agreement to be fair. For example, if the utilities of a property are not functioning properly but a seller knowingly advertises the utilities to be in perfect shape, this misinformation may be classified as fraud. In this example, the repairs could be financially devastating to the potential new owner of the property. There are many forms of fraud, and if you were the victim of fraud you may be entitled to compensation.
- Partnership disputes: Because real estate may be expensive or pertain to business matters, more than two individuals or entities may claim a stake in the investment. This could create different forms of disagreements. Failure to agree on a developmental direction, construction plan, contractors, or even day-to-day operations may result in the need for litigation to settle disputes fairly.
- Zoning issues: Real estate development is governed by rules regulating the types of structures that can be built in any location where development is possible. Putting a shopping mall next to a quiet neighborhood, for example, may be a violation of zoning law.
- Code violations: Every structure is subject to building codes that are designed to protect occupants and visitors. Coding rules differ depending on the jurisdiction of a standing structure, and may also vary based on the type of building.
- Leasing and contract disputes: Much like transactional disputes, disputes regarding leases and contracts may occur for many reasons. One example is if a tenant in a real estate building tries to break a lease while a landlord still holds them accountable for payment. It may require legal arbitration to settle these types of disputes.
- Common facilities: Sometimes tenants or occupants of a real estate property share space with others. This may lead to disagreement over how the common space in that property is shared, maintained, or used. While common areas are designed to provide an equal opportunity for everyone to enjoy a particular area, this is not always the case in practice. Common facilities may lead to ugly disagreements in real estate.
- Boundary disputes: Every owned property has a legal boundary, but sometimes those boundaries are unclear. This may cause a disagreement between owners who share a common boundary line. If another party is infringing on your property, a real estate litigation lawyer may be able to help you settle your dispute.
