We also assist landlords and tenants with rental disputes and provide solutions for either party. Some such solutions might include withholding rent, service notices of eviction, and the like.
Buyer and Seller Disputes
Some of the most common real estate disputes that we deal with involve buyers and sellers of property. Both buyers and sellers are upheld to strict standards once they involve themselves in real estate transactions. For instance, neither the buyer nor the seller can back out of a real estate transaction once contracts have already been signed. Sellers cannot misrepresent the property or force a buyer to purchase a property if inspections reveal issues that the buyer was lead to believe were taken care of. We can also advise both buyers and sellers on how to deal with properties that have contingencies upon them, such as easements, land use agreements, and boundaries.

Real estate land development and commercial transactions are far more complicated than settlement of a residential property. In Maryland, title to real property can be held in several ways such as “fee simple”, meaning absolutely, by joint tenancy by the entirely, tenancy in common, and life estates with or without powers of transfer, sale or mortgage. Because Maryland law is rooted in English common law, Maryland recognizes the right to title in a leasehold interest in real property, known as “ground rent”. Maryland is one of only a few states that permit ground rents. A ground rent payment is treated similar to paying interest on a mortgage for the land itself. Generally, Maryland ground rents are redeemable.
