When Real Estate Conflicts Lead To Litigation
When real estate purchases, sales, lease negotiations or relations between neighboring property owners become contentious for any reason, a challenge can quickly lead to legal troubles. For example, if a potential buyer backs out on short notice, the seller of a property can suffer significant financial losses. Likewise, when a commercial tenant fails to adhere to the terms of a lease, the commercial landlord may suffer negative consequences, such as legal troubles with occupants of adjacent properties. What starts out as an annoyance can escalate and result in costly litigation.
At Dillon Miller Ahuja & Boss, LLP, in the San Diego area, we often say that our most successful litigation cases are ones that never happen because we help clients avoid them altogether. If we facilitate real estate contracts for your company, we will explain ways of negotiating changes to your purchase, sale or lease agreement that can help prevent lawsuits.
When Litigation Becomes Unavoidable
Preventing conflicts is an important part of any litigation attorney’s practice, and that is a large part of what we do at Dillon Miller Ahuja & Boss, LLP. But sometimes, litigation cannot be stopped, such as when an opponent files a lawsuit or a commercial tenant falls behind on lease payments with no end in sight. If a dispute seems to be approaching the point of a lawsuit or if an intolerable situation seems unfixable, it may be necessary for you to defend your business or file a lawsuit.
