Joint Owner Real Estate Disputes
When dealing with commercially owned real estate, it is typical for there to be more than one owner and, unfortunately, co-owner disputes can be the most difficult to resolve. This is because if a joint-owner wants to sell the property or change the way the property is being handled, it is impossible to liquidate that co-owners share of the property. In addition, if a party is not willing to give up their share or control of the shared real estate, then litigation may be the only recourse.
Real Estate Fraud
Commercial real estate transactions can result in fraudulent activity. In some cases, the seller chooses not to disclose important details about the property. If the seller hides major foundational issues, like the plumbing not being in working order, then you may be able to file suit.
Additionally, individuals often attempt to sell properties that they have no legal claim to. These types of scams happen frequently in the commercial real estate world and leave the buyer swindled out of their money with no ownership to the property they believed they were purchasing. If you have been the target of a real estate scam, contact Hardin Law Group, APC today for a free case consultation.
Breach of Contract
All real estate transactions in California must include a contract. Our attorneys will ensure that the contract is properly drafted and covers your interests. If the contract is violated due to a party’s inability to fulfill the promised obligation then a breach has occurred and legal action can be taken.
Purchase Agreement Disputes
When purchasing a property from a seller, disputes can arise as a result of different opinions regarding the details of the sales transaction. A purchase agreement covers the terms and conditions regarding the legal obligations that the seller and buyer owe to one another.

Neighboring Property Owner Disputes
In commercial real estate, it is not uncommon to deal with boundary disputes over a neighboring property. Property boundaries are outlined on the tax map of a county with clear lines creating separation between each property.
Property Boundary disputes typically arise when an owner of a property begins building without getting approval from the zoning board and a neighbor feels that their property line might be threatened. These real estate disputes can often be solved outside of litigation, but in certain cases the issues are not always on the path to resolution. Property boundary disputes can become quickly hostile.
There are many ways to deal with commercial real estate disputes when they arise. Don’t let them affect the potential of your investment by stalling your transactions. Contact Hardin Law Group, APC today.
