Frequently, disputes arise from a contract to buy, sell, or lease property.

Sellers may bring disputes to compel specific performance of the contract of sale and for breach of contract. Real estate law also handles boundary disputes, challenges to good title and property ownership, foreclosure, drainage, and easement issues. Litigation may also be necessary to resolve issues involving the real estate agents or home inspection companies for breach of contract, professional negligence, and breach of their fiduciary obligations.
Although an attorney is not required to close a real estate deal, it is not recommended to complete a real estate transaction without a knowledgeable lawyer present.
