If you have found yourself in a situation where you are having a disagreement regarding property law, we can help.

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.

What Is Property Litigation?

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 Can Include:

  • Disagreements over property ownership
  • Boundaries or fencing issues
  • Problems with lease agreements
  • Disputes about property rights or interests
  • Real estate contracts
  • Land use
  • Zoning
  • Landlord-tenant disputes
  • Boundary and fencing issues
  • And other issues

What to Do If You Find Yourself In a Property Dispute

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:

  1. Get a clear understanding on what the dispute is about – is it a boundary issue, an ownership disagreement, a landlord-tenant dispute or something else?
  2. Once you establish what the dispute is about, seeking legal advice is the next best step. An experienced property lawyer will be able to offer you the proper guidance on what the best next move is to reach the result you want, as well as what your rights and obligations are.
  3. Gather all relevant documents and records including contracts, communication like emails and text messages as well as records of in-person conversations, and any other relevant documents. These can be used as valuable evidence if the dispute escalates and goes to court.
  4. Attempt to resolve the problem without legal action, such as through mediation.Having a neutral third party help to resolve the situation amicably can often work wonders and prevent you from having to go to court.
  5. If the dispute cannot be resolved, legal action is often the next step. This is where the lawyer you previously spoke to will come in handy, as they will know the case and be able to help you move forward, and advocate for your interests in court.
  6. Once a court decision is reached, you can move forward to either enforce the decision, or do what you need to do to comply with the decision to avoid any penalties, even if you disagree with it.

When Should You Hire a Property Dispute Solicitor?

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.

FAQ Regarding Property Disputes & Litigation

Yes, many property disputes are resolved through negotiation or alternative dispute resolution methods like mediation or arbitration. A lawyer can guide you through these processes.

This can greatly depend on the complexity of the case, the willingness of both parties to negotiate, and the legal processes involved. It could range from a few months to several years, depending on the situation.

Relevant information can include property deeds, contracts, lease agreements, correspondence related to the dispute, any documented conversations and any other documentation that might be relevant.

Typically, no. To avoid conflicts of interest, a lawyer usually represents only one party in a property dispute.
A property dispute lawyer can help by researching property deeds and local laws, obtaining or reviewing land surveys, and representing you in negotiations or court proceedings.

A lawyer specialising in property law will be able to help you with a property dispute. Our property lawyers have years of experience dealing with property disputes and litigation in Victoria and are here to help you resolve your dispute.
