On Behalf of | Nov 2, 2023 | REAL ESTATE LAW - Real Estate Disputes |

With a little preparation and legal knowhow, you hope that your real estate transaction goes smoothly. But the truth is that these agreements often see challenges, and deals sometimes sour. When that happens, you might feel cheated and taken advantage of, but you don’t have to sit there and accept your fate and your losses. Instead, you can develop a legal strategy that seeks to set the matter right.

Dealing with breach of contract in a real estate transaction

The real estate transaction agreement to which you and the other party agreed probably had very specific terms. Failing to abide by those terms can result in a breach of contract. This might include:

  • Failing to make adequate payment.
  • Not making payment on time.
  • Improperly delivering the property’s deed.
  • The property’s failing of inspection.
  • Disputing closing costs.

If you find yourself subjected to any to these issues and have suffered losses as a result, then you might want to think about taking legal action.

What can you recover from a breach of contract lawsuit?

You have several remedies at your disposal. To resolve your case, you can seek any of the following outcomes:

  • The recovery of compensation for any damages that you’ve suffered.
  • Cancellation of the contract and the return of any deposits that have been made on the property.
  • Forcing the other party to comply with the terms of the agreement so that the deal is finalized as initially envisioned.

The remedy that you seek is going to depend on what you want out of the process. So, before moving forward with your breach of contract case, analyze what you want for your future.
