Efficient And Effective Solutions To Real Estate Disputes
If you are involved in a dispute over a real estate transaction, it is important to work with an attorney who is familiar with the complex contracts that are used by buyers, sellers, lenders, developers and others. At The Law Offices of James H. Miller Jr. in Chicago, I have represented parties in real estate matters for more than 25 years. I understand the rights and responsibilities of each party in a real estate deal.
For example, the Illinois Residential Real Property Disclosure Act requires property owners to disclose in writing to any prospective buyer certain information that is known about the condition and safety of a property. This includes any known information about past flooding, leaky roofs, mold, foundation problems or other defects. Knowingly delivering a disclosure form that is incorrect or incomplete can be grounds for canceling a purchase contract before closing.
Representing Buyers, Sellers And Others In Real Estate Disputes
I represent clients in a wide range of real estate litigation in Cook County, DuPage County and surrounding Illinois counties. This includes:
- Contract disputes, including breach of contract
- Title disputes
- Mortgage foreclosure actions
- Accusations of fraudulent representation
Many disputes can be resolved without the need to litigate, but it is reassuring to know that your lawyer is always prepared to advocate for you in court if a fair agreement cannot be reached through negotiations.
