Residential Transaction Disputes

When an agreement to purchase a house falls through, the buyer and seller are not always able to agree on the consequences. Real estate disputes can arise when the homebuyer later discovers a title problem or undisclosed property defect. Individuals who buy houses with friends sometimes go their separate ways and need to go to court to get fair compensation for their share of the property. Mr. Bomstein will protect your interests regarding:

  • Breach of sale agreement
  • Fraud and non-disclosure of liens or defects
  • Disputes over down payments/earnest money
  • Commission disputes with real estate brokers
Real Estate Disputes over Title, Use or Nuisance

We routinely represent either party in disputes between business partners or family members over disposition of property in:

  • Quiet title proceedings
  • Partition actions
  • Easement disputes
  • Boundary disputes
Construction Litigation

We represent homeowners, general contractors and subcontractors in construction-related disputes:

  • Construction defects/consumer fraud
  • Delays and non-performance
Commercial Property Disputes
