Real estate litigation in New York City involves high damages, numerous regulations and multiple parties. Especially for disputes, clients should deliberate on retaining the services from a knowledgeable attorney. We have represented clients from all walks of life and from a variety of disputes. The practices and transactions have played a big role.
When it comes to a lawyer, you want someone who can aggressively and skillfully represent you in the event of a legal conflict. Some of the conflicts we have dealt with include leases, purchase agreements, license agreements and other claims on a contract. Lawyers with real estate litigation have the option to represent the landlord or the tenant. In some cases, a tenant might have the right to real estate litigation if the contract wasn’t upheld. For example, the lease was violated based on a lack of providing the essential services like heating, repairing or securing the property. We have also looked at cases with property damage, lease expiration, failure to pay rent and nuisance complaints.
One element of our legal representation comes down to partition actions where the property gets divided based on the interests of the owner. For example, the clients have a common ownership in a property, and they want to divide this property to reflect the individual ownership of it. The actions could result in an actual sale of the property where the proceeds are divided or a buyout of the property.
Whenever recission comes up, you could consider it a remedy to cancel existing contracts, and it restores the parties back to its previous position before entering the contract. You might seek a recision because of fraudulent or innocent misrepresentation and undue influence. This can also happen as a result of a mutual mistake or because of a lack of capacity. Sometimes you have cases where the deed, contract or written instrument doesn’t conform to what the parties had agreed to, and in these circumstances, one party has the option to seek out an equitable remedy for reformation.
When it comes to legal disputes, our real estate litigation lawyers can represent either side of the dispute, and they can many times negotiate settlements with this need for costly litigation on top of it. Our attorneys understand how to skillfully handle the legal situation with reformation and recision.
Perhaps you want to prosecute quiet title claims to properties, and you also want to establish the lien rights and the ownership. Our lawyers represent the property owners, but we can also represent the neighbors who have a conflict over fences, trees, setbacks or a boundary issue.
When someone requires a court order to prevent parties from taking objectionable actions now or into the future, they must take immediate affirmative action. Our lawyers can petition the courts, and we will seek a mandatory preliminary injunction. The declaratory judgment will validate the ownership claims, the assertion of rights and it will look at rent regulatory status.
Sometimes a mortgage dispute or a foreclosure pops up and the lender wants to take action, be it for commercial or residential properties. We will represent either the lien holders of the dispute or the property owners themselves and look at the terms on the mortgage to reach a conclusion.
Sometimes the directors and the shareholders become firmly planted in a litigation case where both of them have a legal battle. The shareholders might claim that the director breached the fiduciary duty. In addition, shareholders also have the right to claim waste of corporate assets, and they can claim the abuse of control. When the director’s conduct comes into question, they will be governed based on loyalty. This will prohibit the director from collecting profits that will put more expenses on the behalf of the corporation. In other cases, the director might have failed to honestly manage the assets, which leads to a breach in the duty of care to its corporation. Our lawyers understand the intricacies of the law, and we will work hard to aggressively represent you in the courts.
