Can a party seek specific performance to resolve a real estate dispute?

Real property transactions are unique in the world of law. Often, damages are not an applicable solution to real property disputes. Instead, a signatory can seek specific performance as a remedy.

What can I do if I find a defect on a recently purchased property in California?

Your first step should be to hire a real estate attorney who can review the real estate transfer disclosure. If the seller failed to disclose a known defect, they may be liable for your damages. Nondisclosure of a defect is a common source of litigation for buyers and sellers, both in residential and commercial real estate transactions.

What is unlawful detainer in California?

Unlawful detainer is a court process that allows a landlord to forcibly evict a tenant. It is sometimes the only way to remove a delinquent tenant, though the process is complex.

What does “time is of the essence” mean in a real estate contract?

In real estate development, fulfillment of a certain duty on time can make or break a project. To ensure a speedy process, many contracts contain a “time is of the essence” clause. It allows one party to cancel the contract or declare the other party in breach of contract if a certain duty is not fulfilled quickly enough.
