    Disputes involving real estate matters are unfortunately a common occurrence, and when they happen they can lead to a number of problems. Projects can get delayed and real estate transactions can fall through. This can lead to a number of additional costs. When you hire a real estate litigation lawyer like one from Eric Siegel Law for specialized assistance, your dispute can be resolved much more efficiently. With a qualified lawyer to guide you through your case, you are more likely to settle your dispute without further complications. Here are some of the cases that a lawyer usually handles. 

    Breach of Contract 

    Contracts are legal documents with established terms and conditions that all parties must adhere to. A breach of contract happens when one or more parties do not follow all of the terms of the contract. This can include things like misrepresentation of assets before a transaction or the failure to fulfill outlined duties and obligations. A party can file a lawsuit against the party who violated the contract and demand compensation. 

    Zoning Issues 

    Understanding zoning laws can be complicated. Zoning refers to what certain buildings and structures can be used for, such as commercial buildings and residential properties. Issues that involve zoning can develop for reasons such as disagreements over how an area should be used or how a boundary should be drawn. Because these cases often involve government bodies as well, they can be especially complex. 

    Environmental Issues 

    Constructing any kind of building requires a necessary environmental assessment. A new structure or change made to a property must not have a significant environmental impact. Issues regarding air or noise pollution are typical environmental concerns. For example, a new commercial property must not be disruptive to the surrounding ecosystem or neighborhoods. 

    Construction Issues 

    Issues with design or construction are often the focus of real estate disputes. Companies are responsible for ensuring that structures and properties can be safely inhabited. Defects can result in safety issues that need to be addressed and resolved. 

    Not all disputes need to be taken to court, but if your real estate dispute is particularly complicated you may need to speak with a lawyer. An experienced lawyer with experience handling many types of litigation cases can help you understand your options and inform you of ways you can settle your dispute. For more information, schedule a risk-free consultation so that a lawyer can assist you with your real estate matter.
