How to Handle Real Estate Disputes

Taking immediate steps to resolve a real estate dispute is the best course of action to avoid a simple matter blowing up. In most cases, you will talk through the challenge with the other party and agree without involving the courts.

Unfortunately, some legal disputes are too complex to be resolved without a mediator or judge. If it is difficult to resolve an issue, we recommend the following practical steps to handle the situation:

1.Gather Information

Before explaining your case to any legal expert, you need to gather some facts about the real estate property in question. If it is an ownership dispute, you will need to complete a title search and find other documents related to the property.

If it is a boundary issue, consult a Tempe licensed surveyor to determine who has encroached on someone else’s land due to a confusing boundary description or arrangement.

These tasks can be frustrating and tough to accomplish. Our experienced Arizona property dispute attorney will help you through this process and ensure you get the necessary legal documents to build your case.

2. Hire an Arizona Real Estate Dispute Attorney

Hiring an experienced Tempe real estate dispute lawyer increases the likelihood of winning the case. Look for a lawyer with a history of dealing with property disputes and who has the resources to handle complex real estate matters. Some questions to ask an attorney you are considering are:

  • How long have you practiced real estate property law in Tempe, Arizona?
  • What would be your strategy if I hired you?
  • Can you provide references for previous work with real estate disputes?
  • What resources can you bring to the case?
  • What is your fee structure?

Our attorneys have years of experience battling real estate disputes before litigation, during litigation, and in front of an Arizona judge or jury. We have the expertise and industry connection to handle the most critical issue in your case. We will consult and retain top experts and represent your interest efficiently.

3. Choose a Resolution Process

Once you have built a solid case and have a component attorney, you can talk to the other party to find a simpler method to solve the dispute before resorting to court. Court cases are usually lengthy, time-consuming, and expensive. Other ways to settle a real estate dispute are:

  • Mediation: A mediator is present to facilitate the negotiation process between the two parties.
  • Arbitration: An arbitrator is appointed by both parties or the court to decide the case after hearing both sides.

If these options are not viable, you can file a lawsuit if the other party has not already done so. The Sorenson Law Firm in Tempe, Arizona, successfully helps clients resolve real estate disputes by offering efficient and cost-effective mediation and arbitration services, in addition to state and federal court legal representation. Contact us today, and let us help you win your case.

Let me start off by saying that if your looking for someone who is kind thoughtful professional down to earth easy to communicate with & is very pro active in how they do business & is 100% invested in you & getting the best outcome for whatever your situation may be than I would recommend jonny & rowanna. This was my first time that I needed to find a lawyer who could assist me with my situation. What stood out to me was at the end of our zoom meeting I remember saying to both jonny & rowann that I'm not interested in moving forward because I was more at fault than the lady who hit me so in my mind I'm thinking we'll this guy probably isn't going to want to take my case because it seemed like it would be an uphill battle, & he responded by letting me know that he would like to take my case & see what he could do & bottom line is that you"ll either have more than what you have now or you"ll be in the same situation. So I thought about it for a minute & decided to trust them to see what happens. So from that day on all the way til the case was resolved I've had a great experience with them. Rowanna explained everything to me in a way that was not complicated & always asked me that if had any questions or if I didn't understand she would ask. They are easy to talk with & made me feel like I was important & trying to get the best outcome for me. When my case was complete I was so grateful & appreciated for what they were able to do for me. Johnny & Rowanna are the best & will always have & want the best for you I know because they did that for me. Thanks again CHRISTOPHER

I worked with The Sorenson Law firm for about 5 months resolving a personal injury claim that occurred during a car accident I was in and I couldn't have been more happy with results. The firm was always responsive, quick to answer any questions I had and I could tell they had my best interest in mind. I would recommend The Sorenson Law Firm to anyone that needs a personal injury lawyer, they're great!

I cannot recommend the Sorenson Law Firm enough. After an accident, I was in a situation where I knew very little about my options. I reached out to my community for advice and Johnny’s wife was quick to put me in contact with him to get me some help. The insurance company we were dealing with was not the easiest, but Johnny and his team did a wonderful job at recovering my losses and fighting for me. Johnny and his team kept me well informed and educated throughout the process, which meant a lot as I was very naïve and knew very little going into this process. I feel fortunate to have crossed paths with this wonderful team, and if life ever throws another curve ball, I’ll be sure to use the Sorenson Law Firm again!!!

Sorenson Law Firm made a tough situation less burdensome for me and my family. Going through the lost of a loved one and having to instill trust in people you don't know is hard. But Johnny Sorenson and his associates were very caring, professional, informative and timely when it came to our case. I would recommend The Sorenson Law Firm to anyone that needs lawyers that actually care about their clients and not just a paycheck. I'm writing this as a thank you to their company and to the team that worked on our case. Thank you!
