From everyday transactions to legal disputes, handling real estate can be a difficult and complicated process. Without the right representation, you are at risk for increased costs, fines, and contract violations that can cause you to lose both your money and property. On the site, at the mediation table, or in the courtroom, we help you with a lot more than just transfer of title.

Chain of Title

Chain of Title is the record of how many times a property title has changed hands, and to whom. In situations where there is a dispute over ownership, proper research and handling of the title process is vital. A mistake can mean losing both your funds and your property.

Boundary Disputes

Your property boundary should not be a moving thing. The lines between what belongs to you and what belongs to an adjoining property are legally set. If a neighbor is encroaching on or affecting your property through sound or chemical pollution, you don’t have to suffer through it. We are skilled in defending your legal right to safety and complete access to your property.

Zoning Issues​

Each city or county is divided into separate areas called zones. Within each zone, property owners are limited to specific uses. With hundreds of different zoning codes, the law can be complicated and confusing. If you are involved in a dispute over zoning or need to change how you legally use your land, we can help.

Contract for Deed

Under a Contract for Deed, the buyer continues to regularly pay the seller until the amount owed is paid in full or the buyer finds another way to pay off the balance. The seller continues to hold the legal title to the property until the balance is paid off; the buyer will receive the legal title once they have made all the payments. If the buyer does not continue to make timely payments, the seller can take possession of the property. Both buyers and sellers have specific rights and responsibilities, which can be difficult to navigate.

Contract Disputes

Developing or interpreting a contract is a vital process in any legal transaction. If your contract is poorly written, you may be subject to huge expenses or breach of contract. We can help you safeguard against being taken advantage of or limited by illegal or incomplete contracts.

The real estate team at Elliott & Ritch, LLP is here for you, to guide you through the process every step of the way.
