As a real estate litigation law firm with offices in San Diego and Fresno, CA we know that real Estate law covers a wide variety of issues, including land rights, easement disputes, landlord/tenant disputes, land use disputes and other related ownership rights. These already complex issues can be further clouded when property rights are split, shared and sold. For the most part, land ownership isn’t just black and white.
A land owner can almost never expect to have unrestricted reign of his property. For instance, a homeowner can’t keep pedestrians from walking across the piece of driveway traversed by the neighborhood sidewalk. And even though a landlord may own the deed to a house, once a renter is living there, the landlord may not enter at his own convenience.
Even more confusing, real estate is sometimes sold from one person to another, but only for certain purposes, like a piece of land sold strictly for mining or an office suite rented out specifically for running a non-profit business. But what if the new owner decides to sell or rent the property to someone else and neglects to inform the new owner or tenant of the encumbrances on the land? The original owner hasn’t done anything wrong nor has the new tenant, but now the dispute must be settled and one of these innocent fellows must lose. This is the reality of the complex world of real estate law.
As a creative problem solving law firm, Webb Law Group does not rely strictly on conventional methods of settling disputes. Instead, our attorneys work with the involved parties to find win-win solutions whenever possible.
