Common Property Law Matters

Property law encapsulates a large number of legal issues, transactions, and relationships. Some of the common issues in property law cases include the following:

  • Mortgage contracts
  • Fraudulent mortgage lending
  • Title insurance disputes
  • Broker commission disputes
  • Easements
  • Adverse possession
  • Fair housing laws
  • Loan modification
  • Foreclosure
  • Land use and zoning disputes
  • Obtaining variances
  • Eminent domain
  • Covenants
  • Landlord/tenant issues

If you own any type of property, there is a good chance you will face one of the above issues at some point. Your first step in that situation should always be to contact an experienced property lawyer for assistance.

How our Lawyers can help with property cases

A skilled attorney can help you with a wide range of property matters in a variety of ways. For example, many transactions require sometimes complicated contracts and an attorney can review these contracts before you sign them, negotiate any unfavorable provisions, and help settle disputes if the other party does not hold up their end of the bargain.

Additionally, an attorney can protect you from predatory or discriminatory lenders and help you hold them accountable for their unlawful behavior. A lawyer can assist you in standing up to a neighbor who is wrongfully using your property or causing such a disturbance that you may not quietly enjoy your property. How one of our lawyers can help depends on the specific facts of your case, and you can rest assured we will do a full evaluation to determine all necessary legal issues at hand.

If you have any type of property law matter, call the Dickson Frohlich in Seattle at (206) 621-1110 or  in Tacoma at (253) 572-1000 for assistance today.

I can’t even tell you how much I appreciate this firm! These guys helped me through one of the most challenging legal situations I’ve faced in my life. Their skill and expertise literally saved my business. I’ve dealt with other counsel in the past but the Dickson firm was by far the most competent and tactful counsel I’ve ever received. I would recommend this group to anyone!
