Maybe You Don’t Need a Real Estate Attorney

Court and legal fees can add up quickly, so some legwork on your end can save you both time and money. Sometimes a potential client may not need a real estate attorney because they had the answer to their question all along.

We often ask clients if they have explored the avenues they have available to them before hiring attorneys and proceeding to court or arbitration. Boundary disputes, for example, are a fairly common issue that landowners can start to research before hiring a legal team.

Boundary Disputes are a Common Real Estate Issue that May Not Need a Lawyer

Because time can muddy the clarity when it comes to property lines, understanding the contested area is a good first step. We ask if the landowners in question have reviewed the surveys, title searches or appraisals that may have been done when originally purchasing the land.

Start at Home with What You Have

Reviewing the documents you already have can shed light on whether or not there is an issue or whether the value of pursuing a claim is worth the expense. A title search may reveal more information, such as a long-forgotten easement that clears up the issue. Knowing these pertinent details can save clients a great deal of headache right up front.

Confirm Key Details Where Needed

The next step may be to hire a surveyor. This can cost a few hundred to several thousand dollars depending upon where you live. However, because you’ll need to have a clear understanding of the property, it may be necessary information to address the issue.

Talk with Your Neighbor

Sometimes a simple conversation can go a long way. Talking with your neighbor in a civil manner may be just what you need to settle up the issue. It can also be the fastest and least expensive step. If this doesn’t resolve the concern, this is where a law firm like ours that is experienced in real estate can help.

Involving Mediators or Lawyers

If all the above fails or if you don’t have the information you need or, if you do have the information and realize there is a case to be made or just don’t feel prepared to handle the matter yourself, this is where Coaty and Woods, P.C. can begin to help. We can negotiate, mediate, or take the next step with sending a letter before filing a lawsuit. We’ll always let you know what your options are so you can take the path right for you.

We know that settling disputes, even when done with civility, is not how clients want to spend their free time. That’s why we work to make the process go smoothly toward the best outcome possible.

Not Every Dispute Needs to Go to Court – Mediation and Arbitration

Our real estate attorneys have seen how the proper litigation approach can promote a favorable resolution of disputes. We also recognize that litigation isn’t always the best option for resolving a real estate dispute. In addition to court fees, appearances and the time involved, coming to an amicable solution outside the courtroom is often the preferred choice for both parties. Mediation or arbitration may be a better avenue for resolving your case.

Our attorneys will work closely with you to outline your objectives, determine the facts of the dispute and uncover the legal strengths and weaknesses of your case. This analysis is essential to developing practical and cost-effective dispute resolution strategies.

What Our Clients Say

I was very well taken care of. These attorneys were on the ball the entire case and kept me informed of the good and the bad in a professional manner. I would not use anybody else and highly recommend them to others. Even the Judge said they did an excellent job.
