Types of real estate litigation

The San Bernardino real estate attorneys at Schlecht, Shevlin & Shoenberger evaluate your case to determine the best course of action. In some cases, the client wants money damages. In others, the client might want a contract enforced through specific performance. The following is an outline of the types of actions common to real estate litigation.

  • Suit for money damages – In these cases, the one party harms the client in a financial way. An example of this is a tenant who breaks a lease. The landlord might sue the tenant for the remaining rent under the lease.
  • Specific performance – A suit for specific performance occurs when one party breaches a contract and the other party wants to enforce it. For example, the seller of a property decides not to sell the property even through the seller is contractually obligated to do so. The buyer can sue the seller for specific performance, forcing the seller to complete the contract and transfer the property to the buyer.
  • Declaratory judgment – Real estate is a document intensive discipline. Sometimes the parties have differing opinions about the interpretation of certain provisions. The Riverside County real estate lawyers at Schlecht, Shevlin & Shoenberger, a law corporation, might file a suit for declaratory judgment, asking the court to declare the rights of the parties under the disputed document.
  • Injunction – An injunction is appropriate to force the other party to do an act or to cease and desist from certain activities. For example, a landlord padlocks the doors to a tenant’s business.
