Some areas of real estate litigation we handle include:
Landlords rely on their tenants and the strength of their leases to succeed. Tenants trust the lease they have with a landlord and the law will protect their rights to use the property they are leasing.
Your rights and obligations as a landlord or tenant in Alabama are defined by state and federal laws, regulations, statutes, and ordinances. Stone Crosby’s attorneys advise landlords in Baldwin County and Mobile County in connection with their residential and commercial leasing needs (including the drafting and negotiating leases, etc.) and represent landlords and tenants in disputes over leases, evictions, liens, and related matters.
When anything goes wrong during or after the construction process, the results can be costly and time-consuming. Whether you’re a property owner, a contractor, sub-contractor or supplier, Stone Crosby’s attorneys will fight to ensure the protection of your rights.
Under Alabama law, no two parties can hold the same property adversely to each other at the same time. If you find out that your property line isn’t where you thought it was or end up in a boundary dispute with another landowner, you need an experienced real estate attorney in your corner. Our firm is familiar with the applicable state and local statutes and will advocate for your interests.
Breach of Sales Agreements
Even though Alabama is a caveat emptor state for the sale of property, meaning “buyer beware,” sellers have some responsibility. For example, if a defect creates a safety issue or if the buyer asks a question about a specific defect, it must be disclosed. If there is no disclosure, the buyer might have cause for a breach of contract dispute.
Our law firm represents buyers and sellers in disputes over contracts and sales agreements. Other common conflicts occur when a seller refuses to transfer title to the buyer or the buyer defaults on a purchase agreement. Our firm can pursue damages as well as specific performance of a contract on your behalf.
HOA and Condo Association Disputes
Our experienced real estate litigation attorneys represent homeowners as well as homeowner, property and condominium owner associations. We understand the complex governing documents and unique laws that apply to these associations and the legal challenges that can arise. We handle a variety of relevant legal matters, including:
- Enforcing restrictive covenants and association rules
- Enforcement of requirement to pay assessments
- Disputes surrounding governing documents and Alabama law
- Litigation with contractors, or other third parties
- Disputes regarding the proper administration of the association’s finances or business
Whether you are an individual property owner or a representative of the association, we can advise you of your rights and obligations and provide the skilled legal guidance you need.
Real Estate Title Litigation
No matter what type of property you own or plan to purchase, title issues can arise, which can lead to a significant amount of confusion and stress. Ideally, you want a clean title to any property that you purchase, but problems might come up during a title search or even after closing.
When a title has problems, it’s said to be “clouded.” Some of the issues our law firm can help resolve include tax liens, constructions liens, and association liens that hold up a closing. We also represent property owners and other interested parties in quiet title actions.
