If you have found yourself in a situation where you are having a disagreement regarding property law, we can help.
Property disputes are often complex situations that can have significant consequences. They often involve a person’s home, which can be very emotional for them, or they can involve commercial property which is a significant investment, and as such they need to be handled with care and taken seriously.
Whether you just need advice regarding a property disagreement or you are facing litigation regarding a property dispute, our property lawyers are here to help.
Property litigation is a specialised area of law that focuses on resolving disputes relating to both residential and commercial property.
To resolve a property dispute, litigation may be necessary, with the goal of reaching a resolution to the dispute, whether that means financial compensation, enforcing a contract, changing the legal status of a property or by other means.
Many times it is also possible to resolve disputes through alternative means that don’t involve litigation and going to court. This is very dependent on the particular situation and the co-cooperativeness of the parties involved.
Property disputes are often complex and need to be handled carefully to avoid making the situation worse.
If you are dealing with a property dispute, it is advised to take the following steps:
The best time to hire a lawyer during a property dispute really depends on each individual situation.
Typically, it’s a good idea to at least get advice regarding your property dispute as soon as it arises. While it may seem like a minor issue, minor disputes can quickly escalate and turn into a major ordeal if not dealt with correctly.
If you are already involved in a dispute, seeking a lawyer’s advice is certainly a good idea before any legal proceedings take place. Doing so too late can mean not enough time to prepare your case, leading to an unfavourable outcome.
If you have managed to reach an agreement and you are asked to sign a legal agreement, it would be a very good idea to get this looked over by a lawyer. The last thing you want is to sign a legal document that holds you to something you do not agree with and is not in your interests.
Due to the nature of property disputes and the fact they can quickly escalate, it is a good idea to at least get an opinion on the matter from an experienced property lawyer as early a possible.
