3 Common Real Estate Disputes and How to Solve Them

by Contributing Author

Most of the time, when buying or dealing with real estate, many misunderstandings and disputes may arise. These disputes often involve lots of money, and the more time they take, the more losses you might incur. If you live in Canada but have a real estate dispute in Israel, this dispute can be very costly. This is why it’s vital to seek common ground and alternatives to solve the dispute other than the court. You can try negotiating a solution outside the court when there is a dispute. However, when the outside-the-court negotiation fails, it’s time to seek a real estate lawyer, such as an Israeli lawyer in Canada, to help you file a lawsuit. The lawsuit must be brought to the state where the real estate land is located. This article will explore common real estate disputes and how to resolve them.

  1. Breach of Contract

When selling or buying land, you must sign a legally binding contract that contains vital information that both parties should follow. Some things involved in the contract include the contract’s closing date, financing, the purchase price, and the property description. If one party fails to follow the agreed requirement, the other party has a right to sue them. This is why it’s vital to hire a real estate lawyer to help you confirm the terms of the contract and act in your best interest.

When dealing with real estate contracts, some terms and language can be complicated to comprehend. You can ask the lawyer to define it and help you understand all the terms you agree to. You can also know your rights and responsibilities, which makes it easy to know when the other party is not holding their end of the deal.

  • Breach of Contract

When transacting on real estate, many personnel and things are involved. Some of the people involved include real estate agents and other professionals. These people owe their clients the duty of care by ensuring no harm comes to them. However, some professionals often breach the duty of care by involving their clients in bad deals and giving them misleading information. 

Real estate professionals should always act in the best interest of their clients. This includes keeping their client’s information confidential and protesting their interest over third parties. If you realize the agent has breached their duty of care, you should consult a real agent lawyer to help you file a lawsuit. You will get compensation for the loss due to the breach of duty.

  • Failing to Disclose Defects on Properties

One major cause of disputes is when the seller knows the defect on the property, they are selling about fails to disclose it to the buyer. When you buy a property and notice defects not highlighted during your contract, you should consider filing a lawsuit. However, for your case to be strong, you should be able to prove the defect was non-obvious, and the seller must know about the defect. You should also be able to prove that the seller hides the information intentionally.

To Conclude…

Real estate deals are very crucial and sensitive. If you don’t understand the deal’s terms or want to seek compensation, hire a reputable lawyer to help you out.
