Tried & True Service for a Range of Real Estate Issues
Real estate law in Connecticut is as varied as it is complex. In many situations,
a single real estate law case that requires mediation or litigation does
not even center on a single bit of legislation. Instead, a myriad of rules
and regulations will come into play and weigh significantly upon the outcome
of the case, such as how a piece of property can ultimately be used, what
sort of taxes will apply to the land, who retains control of the property
if the current owner passes away, and so forth.
Some of the real estate matters our Waterbury real estate attorneys can
Despite the wide variety of the real estate laws in Connecticut, the majority
of them can be sorted under three main umbrella categories. Gaining an
understanding of these categories may significantly help you as your case
pans out and you discuss more complicated concerns with your Waterbury
real estate lawyer.
Property and real estate laws in Connecticut will generally concern:
Homesteads: Homeowners throughout the state should consider how homestead laws can
be used to their advantage when in the face of a creditor. By designating
a certain portion of your property as your “homestead,” you
can shield it from collections in case you fall into bankruptcy.
Adverse possession: When a piece of real estate property is neglected or abandoned for an extended
period of time, adverse possession laws in Connecticut can allow a third
party to gain control it. This sort of real estate law is often cited
in cases involving neighborly disputes over adjoining land that has not
Leases and rental agreements: For the average person living in Connecticut, lease and rental agreements
and disputes will be the most likely reason why they encounter a real
estate law conflict. Landlords and tenants, in both residential and commercial
properties, often need the assistance of an attorney to resolve a small
issue that escalates into a serious problem.
Protecting Your Interests Through Thick & Thin
Real estate management and ownership will nearly always be a critical investment
and a major venture. The shortest, most-straightforward of real estate
contracts can still have big implications and reverberating consequences
if something is mishandled. Fitzpatrick Mariano Santos Sousa P.C. and
our Waterbury real estate attorneys deliver effective legal solutions
that help you enjoy, protect, and benefit from your real estate endeavors.
With more than century of combined legal experience, we have the necessary
versatility and comprehension of the nuances of real estate law to reach
an amicable solution for your case.
Three ways we may be able to conclude your real estate dispute are:
Contract review: Important decisions in real estate matters demand foresight, thoroughness,
and the support of a Waterbury real estate attorney. Contracts must be
valid from the first word to the last. Our team can review them for errors
after they have been drafted, or assist you in creating new contracts
that will be legally watertight.
Dispute negotiations: When a real estate dispute – such as a landlord-tenant argument,
failures to disclose, construction and zoning questions, conflicts between lenders and contractors,
and more – arise, our attorneys can step in and mediate. By negotiating
a conclusion, you may be able to save all parties involved both time and money.
Litigation: Sometimes a real estate dispute cannot be resolved through negotiation.
When the other party stubbornly will not concede or try to cooperate,
litigation in the courtroom becomes necessary. The Waterbury litigation
attorneys at our firm are more than prepared to take your case to trial.
