Common Commercial Real Estate Disputes

The commercial property industry is a complicated business with a extensive set of ever-changing legal parameters often leading to nasty, costly commercial real estate disputes that can have long-term consequences for all parties involved.

Disputes involving complex commercial property ownership can frequently be resolved only through the expertise and experience of a qualified commercial real estate attorney. Depending on the nature of the dispute, resolution can take months or even years in cases that deal with multiple parties and extreme circumstances.  

How Do Commercial Real Estate Disputes Differ From Residential?

Commercial real estate deals are typically more complicated residential property deals, with more people, more money, and more rules and regulations to adhere to. Disputes regarding a commercial real estate property can involve lengthy and costly investigations and examinations by land-use experts, water law attorneys, and other specialists in the commercial real estate industry.

Disputes involving a residential real estate deal are not fun and can have grave financial impacts on multiple parties. However, commercial real estate disputes are complicated messes that affect anyone in the industry from purchasers, sellers, and realtors, to landowners and easement holders.

The most common commercial real estate disputes that cause the most disruption for owners and investors center around disputes over land usage rights, quiet title proceedings, boundary line issues, sales disclosure information, among many others.

Homeowners associations can serve a valuable purpose in keeping a community looking and performing at top condition, but some HOAs can overstep their bounds. When homeowners push back, disputes arise. Each HOA is different and run by varying sets of rules and guidelines, and governed by a wide range of personalities and characters.

The most common types of commercial real estate disputes include:

  • Boundary Disputes
  • Covenant or HOA Disputes
  • Easement Usage Disputes
  • Land Use Approval before Zoning or Planning Commissions
  • Partition Matters
  • Quiet Title Cases

These types of commercial real estate disputes are more involved than traditional property conflicts and require a more aggressive and in-depth approach to resolution.
