General Litigation - Let a New Jersey Real Estate Litigation Attorney Help
Litigation is a primary practice area at Griffin Alexander, P.C. The unfortunate reality of real estate law is that — no matter what you do to establish preventative measures (in an effort to avoid a dispute) — litigation is sometimes inevitable. When the process of real estate litigation begins, it’s important that you work with experienced and proven New Jersey trial practitioners who can capably handle your case from start-to-finish.
Legal Issues We Commonly Litigate
We litigate a variety of real estate issues:
At Griffin Alexander, P.C., our New Jersey real estate litigation attorneys regularly represent clients involved in property disputes, including those that center around the breach of real estate contracts, environmental issues, conflicts over title, easement conflicts, property tax litigation, boundary disputes, trespass, squatting, and much more.
Condominium Law Disputes
We are leading advocates for community associations and condo associations throughout New Jersey and New York. In fact, we have represented over 200 community associations since our founding, and have assisted them with challenging disputes involving residents, board members, and property owners — ranging from the enforcement of governing regulations (i.e., collection) to fiduciary duty violations and issues concerning the maintenance of common areas.
Construction defects can undermine the economic value of your property and thereby threaten the otherwise sound cost-benefit analysis that led you to invest in the property in the first place. A construction defect lawsuit that is not properly defended may not only expose you to financial losses but may also cause damage to the reputation of the target real estate property, depressing rates and leading to long-term vacancy problems.
We maintain a vibrant landlord-tenant practice, and regularly defend residential and commercial landlords, developers, and management companies in disputes with their tenants.
Landlord-tenant disputes are common and may involve issues such as the collection of unpaid rent, rent control, eviction, maintenance disputes, concerns over a breach of the lease agreement, and more. We take a comprehensive approach to landlord-tenant litigation and strive to find the ideal solution to a conflict that meets the circumstances.
Fair Housing Complaints
Federal, state, and local regulations prohibit discrimination against those who are members of a protected class. We regularly assist property owners, community associations, developers, and others in complying with fair housing regulations, but there are always unpredictable situations in which a plaintiff may present an allegation of discrimination. Our experience in compliance and litigation serves us well in this regard. We understand the steps necessary to prevent a fair housing violation and know how to work with regulatory bodies to avoid escalation of conflicts.
We have extensive experience working with corporate landlords, developers, and management companies (as well as commercial entities not involved in the real estate space) in litigating various disputes arising out of their business interests. We are experienced litigators who have taken numerous cases to trial. We have unique insight into how to resolve corporate disputes before they advance to the pre-trial stage.
