REAL ESTATE DISPUTES

R eal estate has consistently proven itself to be one of Arizona’s prime industries. As a result, regardless of where the market may be, there is no shortage of real estate disputes in the state.

Whether you’re a property owner, investor, developer, broker, property manager, landlord, or tenant, there is always the possibility of getting caught up in a real property dispute, which could get out of hand fast, much to the detriment of everyone involved.

Should you find yourself in a feud that concerns real estate, you are going to need the services of a top-notch real estate litigation attorney in Arizona.

Our attorneys offer a solution-oriented approach to resolving any real estate dispute. Fortunately, in virtually every real estate matter, the prevailing party is entitled to recovery of its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs per the real estate contract or through Arizona statute. Also, most real estate disputes can be resolved before trial through mediation. In fact, most residential real estate disputes must be submitted to mediation before going to court per section 7 of the standard form Arizona Association of REALTOR® Purchase Agreement.

Our Track Record Concerning Real Estate Disputes

Many real estate disputes can be resolved before going to court, either through informal negotiations or through private mediation. But if real estate litigation is necessary, our attorneys are prepared to represent your legal interests at trial. Our track record when it comes to real estate matters speaks for itself.

In 2017, Provident Law® and Attorney Christopher Charles obtained one of the Top Ten Civil Jury Verdicts concerning a real estate non-disclosure matter that resulted in a Jury Verdict of $1,344,808.69, plus an award of attorneys’ fees and costs.

Our property dispute lawyers represent property owners in every forum in Arizona, including State Court and the Federal District Court, regulatory tribunals, or alternative dispute resolution venues. In any arena, our core strength and competency rests on our narrow focus on Arizona law and knowledge of its application across a variety of industries.

From the onset of a dispute to its final resolution, our real estate dispute lawyers counsel our clients on the legal merits of the matter and advance their litigation campaign based on their risk tolerance and directives.

Specifically, our property dispute attorneys will take the time to understand our clients’ objectives. After all, each real estate dispute brings a unique set of variables, among them the client’s exposure versus their upside reward, plus varying degrees of legal strategy and significance. And while we will always be prepared for a trial, we will do whatever we can to look for early-exit options such as motions to dismiss or summary judgment, as well as opportunities for reasonable settlement agreements or indemnification by third parties or insurance.

This analysis and thoughtful communication allow our clients to make well-informed decisions in these high-stakes cases.

Real estate law, by itself, is technical and in flux. And so is the legal system. Be intentional about who you trust to solve your real estate problem.
