Real Estate Litigation
Atlanta, Georgia Real Estate Litigation and Trial Lawyers
The attorneys at Austin & Sparks have decades of experience involving real estate litigation. Unfortunately, disputes involving title to land and boundary disputes can lead to contentious and long lasting litigation. Over the years, we have found that an early dialogue with the opposing party usually leads to the best results for our client. However, if litigation and/or a trial are required in order to resolve the dispute, our attorneys have a proven track record of successfully litigating real estate disputes and taking those cases to trial if necessary. We have also successfully represented our clients in cases involving legal malpractice. Usually, that malpractice is associated with a closing that was improperly conducted. When an attorney negligently conducts a closing that is not within the applicable standard of care, and when an individual and/or entity is hurt as a result of that negligence, then a cause of action exists for legal malpractice. There have been cases where a seller of property fails to disclose a problem to the purchaser, and the purchaser purchased a property with a serious defect. We have represented the purchaser for damages sustained as a result of a failure to disclose. Our attorneys handled a nuisance and trespass case where water from the City of Atlanta’s sewer system destroyed one of our clients businesses. We represented another client where runoff from a large housing development destroyed our client’s lake. Finally, we have represented commercial landlords and tenants in various disputes concerning commercial leases. Dealing with commercial lease agreements is a business transaction. As such, our attorneys approach real estate matters and other legal issues that affect landlords and tenants in a businesslike, direct, results-oriented fashion.
