There are several reasons that a commercial real estate dispute may arise but among the more common causes are:
Breach of contract
Disputes may involve various laws including state, federal, and local laws. In some cases, it may also include a government agency such as a local zoning board. Each of these laws, regulations, and agencies may have specific requirements and procedures that must be followed when a dispute arises. This is where an experienced commercial real estate becomes necessary to guide you through the complex legal process.
Due to the high-stakes and large amount of money involved in disputes, it’s critical to have an attorney well-versed in the various laws and procedures to assist you. The process for resolving real estate disputes may include:
Mediation occurs when all parties in the dispute come together to discuss a possible compromise or resolution. A third-party mediator acts as an unbiased voice of reason that helps to facilitate the negotiation. Mediation can be cheaper and less time consuming than litigation. It also gives the parties more control over the resolution.
Arbitration is a procedure, similar to a court case, in which both parties submit testimony and evidence to one or more arbiters who decide the outcome of the dispute. The arbitrator will assess the testimony, review documentation, gather information, and may consult with experts where warranted. Both parties agree that the decision is legally binding. The arbiter is an objective third-party chosen by both parties. The decision is confidential, consensual, and final.
If disputes are not resolved during mediation or arbitration, then another alternative is litigation. The dispute is handled in the court system and decided by a judge or jury. However, it is possible to settle at any time during litigation. If both parties agree, then a judge may sign off on the agreement before the dispute reaches a trial.
