Investment & Title Issues
Our law firm handles all matters related to real estate investments — including partnerships, property management issues, and landlord & tenant matters. When disputes arise concerning title of property, our firm works to advance the ownership interests of our clients by removing improper liens, executing partition actions, and initiating or defending quiet title actions.
Easements are a very common way for homeowners to grant access to other parties access, such as driveways, roads, fences, and utility poles. Our attorneys have a wealth of experience in creating and extinguishing easements, as well as representing homeowners in easement disputes.
HOA & Neighbor Disputes
Disagreement among neighbors is the most common source of homeowner disputes. Our firm assists homeowners that find themselves in conflict with the CC&Rs put forth by their homeowners association (HOA), representing owners in hearings and lawsuits concerning floods, right to use issues, rule violations, noise & neighbor conflicts, and short-term rental restrictions. We also defend HOA boards from lawsuits over special assessments, amendments, and enforcements.
Boundary, Fence, & Tree Disputes
Boundary disputes are the most common issues that arise between neighbors, often initiated by a disagreement about a fence, tree, or property line. Reconcilling boundary disputes involves a careful balancing of legal principles and fact patterns to bring forth an amiable resolution. Attorneys with our Boundary Dispute practice group have extensive experience navigating conflicts and creating solutions for commercial and residential owners.
