Real Estate Litigation Attorneys Santa Cruz County
At Dawson, Passafuime, Bowden & Martinez, our law firm represents clients with all types of real estate disputes throughout Santa Cruz and surrounding counties.
Real estate litigation can take many forms. A buyer might sue a seller of a property for the seller’s fraud or failure to disclose problems with the property prior to its sale. A person with an interest in real estate may need to initiate a lawsuit to “quite title” as to other people with possible interest in the real property. In Santa Cruz County, neighbors may have disagreements about waters access and usage rights or easement and boundary disputes. Also, due to the increase in number of Homeowners’ Associations (HOAs), homeowners may have disputes with the association itself, the contractor who build the place, or other neighbors in the association.
In real estate litigation, the parties are presenting their dispute to a judge or arbitrator, often after informal negotiation or mediation has failed. This type of litigation is often complex due to the number of parties frequently involved and the complexity of real property law.
The real estate lawyers at Dawson, Passafuime, Bowden & Martinez can assess your situation and help you enforce and protect your property rights in negotiations or litigation. Our attorneys can also help you minimize potential future litigation over real estate disputes.
