How We Can Help You

For Sellers

  1. Property Sales and Transactions: We help sellers prepare a contract of sale, check for compliance with all legal requirements, and negotiate terms so that you get the best deal.
  2. Title and Ownership Issues: We perform title searches during the preliminary phase of a real estate transaction to determine the existence of any defects in the title or legal ownership of a property, and address any such issues before the final sale.
  3. Legal disclosure obligations:  We advise sellers of their obligations to make certain disclosures if they know about any material defects in the property being sold, so that they can avoid liability.

For Buyers

  1. Purchase Agreements: We can review a purchase agreement and advise a purchaser of his rights and obligations under the agreement; we can negotiate the terms of a purchase agreement to protect a purchaser’s interests.
  2. Closing: We can walk you through the difficult closing process, make sure your documents are ready, and facilitate the transfer of funds and deeds.

For Landlords and Tenants

  1. Agreements/Leases: We can negotiate or prepare leases, review or draft agreements to make sure they comply with the law as appropriate, and agree on terms.
  2. Eviction Proceedings: We will assist landlords with filing eviction proceedings, without violating tenant rights and while engaging with the proper legal proceedings.
  3. Termination of lease: We will advise landlords and tenants on the process to follow in ending a lease early, and any notice periods, returning of deposit and other disputes.

For Homeowners

  1. Contract Review and Negotiation: We can review and negotiate contracts that a homeowner signs with contractors, home builders, and service professionals for remodeling and repairs to their homes.
  2. Homeowners Association (HOA) Issues: We can advocate for HOA members’ rights and responsibilities and help resolve HOA disagreements. We can review and interpret HOA notices and HOA paperwork. We can represent you in arbitration, and in court if necessary.
  3. Foreclosure Defense: If you are a homeowner on the verge of foreclosure, we can advise you on foreclosure defense options, negotiate a loan modification or offer another solution with the lender, and represent you in litigation.
  4. Real Estate Disputes: Conflicts over real estate concerns, including construction defects, non-disclosure of property defects, conflict with contractors or neighbors, and breach of real estate contracts. We can help resolve your conflict by whatever legal means necessary to bring the issue to a proper resolution.

Using Partition Actions To Resolve Your Real Estate Dispute

One common resolution strategy used in real estate disputes is partition actions. These types of actions are specific to real estate actions involving joint ownership of real property. Ownership in common can take on a variety of forms, including, but not limited to: property acquired during a marital union (post-marital dissolution); real property co-owned as a business or investment; or property inherited jointly from the death of a parent. Generally, whenever there is a breakdown in any one of these relationships, the ultimate result will usually require legal action in order to divide the jointly held property.

This legal action will come by way of what is referred to as a partition action, which can be used to (1) divide the real estate and/or the value of the property among those who own the property in common through what is known as equitable division; and/or (2) to effectuate the sale of the real estate and distribute the proceeds of the sale.

These disputes may become complex and expensive to solve if the co-owners do not agree to split the property and/or sell the property according to the different objectives and interests of the parties. Our Freehold real estate dispute lawyers have years of experience dealing with these disputes and advising on what action to take to best protect your interests.
