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.
