What is Real Estate Litigation?

One area Bombard Law Office, PC focuses on is real estate litigation. Many people have asked what this entails. The answer is that when something goes wrong with your house or property, and you need a resolution. It can be something simple like an old encumbrance on your title; it could be something that concerns the sale of your house because the other party intends to breach the purchase and sale contract; or it can be a complex adverse possession case. Other issues include code violation, foreclosure-related, a condominium lien, boundary dispute, or a landlord/tenant matter.


With some research and ingenuity, sometimes a real estate issue can be resolved with a title affidavit or pre-suit negotiation. One time, I inherited a case where there was already a lengthy litigation to cure a title issue. The mortgage was missing the correct property description. After some research, I tracked down the closing attorney for that mortgage, obtained the original mortgage, and filed a confirmatory mortgage. I cleared the title issue in a matter of weeks and dismissed the suit. With that preliminary research, I saved the homeowner time and money.


Sometimes, the issue is involved, and there is no way to avoid court. If the other party is uncooperative, then litigation may be the only answer. Either way, if you plan to be involved in a lawsuit, an experienced real estate attorney will save you time and money by designing an efficient strategy.


If you have a real estate issue you believe might be an issue (even if it isn’t listed above) feel free to reach out to me. I would be happy to review the present situation and provide you with a comprehensive plan to resolve it.
