California Real Estate Litigation Attorney

Riverside County real estate litigation lawyer

Lawyer for Resolving Residential and Commercial Real Estate Disputes

Ideally, every real estate transaction would end with both parties completely satisfied, but unfortunately, this is not always the case. Often, either during the transaction process or after the transaction is complete, the actions of one or more of the involved parties leads to a dispute or disagreement. Sometimes, these disputes have very real financial implications. If you find yourself embroiled in a dispute over a commercial or residential real estate property, you may need to resolve it in court.

At the Law Office of David Schechet, we provide legal representation for buyers, sellers, owners, renters, and a variety of other parties involved in real estate litigation. Through 35 years of legal practice, we have developed the knowledge, skill, and experience necessary to succeed in a real estate dispute. We are committed to ensuring that your interests are protected and building the strongest possible case to help you secure a fair verdict.

Representation for a Range of Real Estate Disputes

There are many situations in which a real estate dispute could end up in court. We represent clients in cases involving:

  • Breaches of contract - A residential or commercial real estate purchase contract requires buyers and sellers to meet certain expectations, including fulfilling contingencies and exchanging the funds and property within a specified time frame. Breach of contract disputes may arise because a seller conceals important information or fails to make required disclosures, or because either party refuses to follow through on their commitments. We can help you seek financial compensation for any losses, or obtain a court order requiring the other party to fulfill their contractual obligations.
  • Lease disputes - Disputes can arise between lessors and lessees if either party violates the terms of the lease agreement. For example, a party may fail to fulfill their financial obligations, attempt to use the property for an unauthorized purpose, cause damage to the property, or fail to keep the property safe. We can represent you in pursuit of damages or in an eviction proceeding.
  • Title disputes - Disputes may arise when different parties have competing claims to a property. This can happen when property passes from one person to another without a clear transition of the title, or when a party claims the right to use someone else's property through an easement. Title disputes and encumbrances can impede a sale, so it is important to take action to resolve them as quickly as possible.
  • Property liens - Liens are another type of title encumbrance that impose a burden on a property owner. A lien may be assessed by a creditor in response to delinquent payments, or the IRS in response to a failure to pay taxes. A property owner can also be subject to a mechanic's lien after failing to provide payment due to a contractor who did work on the property. We can help you resolve a dispute before a lien is assessed, or remove a lien that has been placed on your property.
  • Boundary disputes - Disputes can arise between neighboring property owners over structures and land use at the boundaries between them. You may have to resort to litigation to resolve such disputes and defend your right to your own property.
  • Partition disputes - When a real estate property is jointly owned between two or more people, there may be disputes regarding how the property should be used and who has the right to make decisions and collect income from the property. If you cannot resolve these disputes to your satisfaction, we can help you petition for the partition of the property to secure a fair portion of its value.

It is important to note that many of these issues can also be resolved through real estate dispute mediation if you and the other party are willing to work toward common ground. However, if mediation is not realistic, or if attempts fail, we are prepared to represent you throughout the litigation process until the outcome of your case is decided.
