Real Estate Property Disputes

Respected Charlottesville Lawyers Represent Clients in Real Property Disputes

Knowledgeable Virginia attorneys assert clients’ real estate rights

If you own real property, there’s always the chance that you will find yourself embroiled in a dispute with a neighboring landowner. At the law firm of Tucker Griffin Barnes P.C., we handle disagreements regarding property lines, repair disputes and other issues and strive to achieve favorable outcomes through mediation, negotiation and litigation. We serve Virginia clients from our offices in Charlottesville, Palmyra and Harrisonburg.

Dedicated lawyers work to resolve conflicts over property use and damage

Our attorneys advise property owners and tenants on acting in accordance with the law when other landowners behave inappropriately. We deal with all types of property disputes, including those involving:

  • Property lines — One of the best tools you have at your disposal in a property-line dispute is a boundary survey, which shows exactly where property lines begin and end. We can review existing surveys for accuracy and obtain revisions that can help you resolve issues with confidence.
  • Boundary fences — In Virginia, landowners are equally responsible for paying for boundary fences. If a fence falls into disrepair, either landowner can provide the other with notice of intent to repair and request reimbursement for half the cost.
  • Tree-related damage — All Virginia property owners have the right to trim back tree branches and roots encroaching on their property at their own expense. If any damage occurs as a result of these branches or roots coming onto your property, you may file a nuisance claim.
  • Zoning issues — Zoning ordinances set rules for how designated plots of land can and cannot be used. We can represent you before local zoning boards in instances where the regulations cause hardship.
  • Property damage and repairs — Disputes can arise between landlords and tenants or between homeowners and real estate developers over who is responsible for making repairs and paying for damage.

We are well-versed in the state and local statutes that concern Virginia property owners and can advise you on how to proceed during a dispute. When it is impossible to resolve a case outside of court, our experienced litigators will be by your side during any necessary litigation.

Informed attorneys take action to clear cloud on title issues

A cloud on title is an irregularity that compromises clear ownership of real property.  It may be caused by a lien, a forged deed, a simple recording error or some other issue. Clouds of title can prevent property from being sold or refinanced, causing major headaches for the owner. We work with owners to overcome cloud–on-title problems by clearly establishing the owner’s title and by using quitclaim deeds to transfer property ownership.
