When someone enters into a real estate transaction, the possibility that a dispute could arise down the road may be the last thing on a person’s mind. Unfortunately, this happens all too often, and when a real estate dispute does arise, the contract between the parties will probably be the biggest part of the problem – or it can be the solution.
A property dispute can take many forms, but if the problem is between the buyer and the seller there is almost always a contract in play. Real estate contracts are an essential part of any property transfer, and for good reason. It is the real estate contract that spells out the terms of the transfer, as well as what remedies may be available in the event of a dispute.
For instance, what if something happens to the property between the time that a contract is signed and the time the buyer moves in? A properly reviewed and executed contract should point the parties in the right direction as to how this type of situation is supposed to be resolved.
At our firm, we believe that both buyers and sellers can never be too careful about what types of terms go into a real estate contract. These important documents don’t always have to be the source of problems – they can also provide the right solution. That is why at our firm we believe it is crucial to ensure that a real estate contract does not provide any unfavorable terms for our clients.
