In this video, Timothy Lockhart, an Associate lawyer with Tannahill Lockhart & Clark Law, provides his insight into when an individual or business should consider hiring a real estate litigation lawyer, and cites examples about when and why that should be a consideration.
Specific examples of when litigation is needed:
– there is an alleged breach of an agreement for purchase and sale
– a leasing dispute involving non-payment of rent and removal of fixtures
– defending against a claim for payment of a disputed real estate commission
We believe that, for the most part, people and businesses want to avoid being involved in litigation as it can consume huge amounts of time, energy, resources, and money — all of which are better devoted to more profitable activities. Litigation is an unpredictable process that is frequently slow and frustrating. Adjudication before a judge or arbitrator who does not know the litigants themselves or their businesses is an out of date and impractical tool for dispute resolution in the modern world. However, when real estate litigation is unavoidable and required, our law firm is well equipped with the experience, knowledge, and resources to protect the interests of our clients
