In real estate, there are sometimes disputes between neighbors. Perhaps a fence is in the wrong location, or a neighbor keeps blocking another one's driveway with their vehicle. Whether it's zoning issues or problems with the sale of a property, it's a real estate attorney who can help.
Why work with a real estate attorney?
It's a good idea to work with a real estate attorney when there is a problem with your property or the people around you are violating your property rights. Resolving disputes is often as simple as your attorney writing up a letter and delivering it to the other party with your requests. If you and the other party can't come to an agreement, the same attorney can help you take the case to court.
Real estate attorneys are also familiar with the laws in New York, so they can help you understand when your rights have been violated and when you have little or no evidence for a case. Attorneys can help you when there's proof of a problem, but they're also there to let you know the reality of your situation.
What can you expect with a real estate dispute case?
With most cases, there's no way to guarantee an outcome. However, you can expect your attorney to advise you and communicate to you the options that are there. Your attorney may help with mediation or arbitration, going to trial or with paperwork.
