Common Types of Property Disputes
Property disputes can encompass any number of issues involving homeowners, neighbors, landlords, tenants, property visitors, homeowner associations, and government entities.
Common property disputes can include but are not limited to:
- Contract disputes. These generally occur over one party failing to deliver on the terms of the contract, such as in purchase/sales agreements, construction, remodeling, or repair contracts, leases and rental agreements, and any other written contracts between parties involved in real property.
- Boundary and easements. These generally occur between neighbors who are in disagreement over property lines or easement access.
- Landlord/tenant disputes. This can involve not only the payment of timely rent but disputes over repairs, unnecessary noise disturbance, property damage, subletting, and more.
- Fraud. This generally occurs when one party misrepresents something about the property in their negotiations or transactions, such as failure to disclose property defects in a sale.
- Zoning issues. You may be facing an issue with a local government agency on the matter of zoning.
- Fences. Where you have a boundary fence with a neighbor, you are both responsible for the cost of repairing it. This can lead to disagreements and disputes.
- Trees. The encroachment of trees and roots from one neighbor’s yard to another can result in disputes and civil claims, such as nuisance claims.
- Insurance coverage disputes. You may find yourself in a dispute with an insurance company over its denial or reduction of proper coverage of fire, theft, and other property damage.
- Title claims. These involve claims and liens against real estate, such as the nonpayment of former mortgages by previous owners that were not discovered in a title search.
- Mechanics’ liens.
- Disputes between co-owners, joint tenants, or real estate partners about the management, development, sale, or other matters related to their jointly-owned real estate.
