Real Estate Litigation

Claims involving your rights in real property may arise in any number of situations. You may be ready for some, such as during the purchase or sale of a parcel of property or a tenant failing to pay rent. Others may come seemingly out of nowhere, implicating the use, boundaries, or even ownership to your land. MacDonald Illig Attorneys can assist you in every type of real estate dispute.

When confronted with a real estate dispute, you must chose an attorney very carefully.  Real estate litigation is a specialized practice area because the law recognizes that each piece of land is unique. This age old principle of law has resulted in specific causes of action (types of law suits), rules, and remedies to determine and protect rights of landowners. Many lawyers are skilled real estate practitioners or skilled litigators, but few are both.
