Our areas of expertise

Our real estate legal team has significant experience resolving a variety of property disputes, including:

  • Resident property disputes, including disputes about enforcing or terminating purchase and sale agreements
  • Issues arising from undisclosed property defects that weren’t shared before the agreement and other instances of negligent and fraudulent misrepresentation
  • Claims on a title that affect a property’s value or use, such as liens, court judgements, certificates of pending litigation, caveats or builder’s liens
  • A buyer’s refusal to close a purchase in a weak market or due to their inability to obtain sufficient financing
  • A seller’s refusal to complete the transaction due to rising property values
  • Buyer and seller legal remedies in a collapsing transaction
  • Co-ownership disputes under the Partition of Property Act involving one owner’s desire to sell the property against the wishes of the other co-owners
