Solving Real Estate Issues
Unlike many other firms who “practice” real estate, Cuttone and Associates is real estate. The attorneys at Cuttone & Associates are not only licensed to practice law, but are also licensed by the California Department of Real Estate to sell real estate and have done so. As a result, the attorneys at Cuttone & Associates have an intimate knowledge of the inner workings of a real estate transaction that is unknown to most other law firms. As a result, Cuttone & Associates is often contacted by attorneys at other firms to explain the real estate transaction process.
Whether you are a buyer, seller, tenant, real estate licensee, developer, contractor, or home inspector, Cuttone & Associates has the skill and experience to resolve all matter of real estate litigation cases including:
Failure to Disclose
In California, a seller of a residential property of one to four units is required to disclose material defects concerning the property. However, while this sounds simple enough, the truth of the matter is that determining what was disclosed, what should have been disclosed, and what should have been discovered is very complicated and convoluted. If you have purchased a property that has undisclosed defects or are facing a complaint from a buyer regarding undisclosed defects, Cuttone & Associates has the experience to resolve the issue.
Unfortunately, real estate transactions are fertile ground for fraudulent conduct. Cuttone & Associates has represented numerous clients in transactions where sellers and real estate professionals have concealed defects or misrepresented the condition of the property to obtain a higher purchase price or real estate commission.
Easements, Covenants, and CC&Rs
Easements, Covenants, and Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (CC&Rs) are all tools used to restrict what individuals can do on their own land or allow individuals to do something on another’s land. Many landowners rely on easements to access their properties through a neighbor’s property. Cuttone & Associates have litigated numerous cases involving easements, covenants, or CC&Rs, and can help with any problem.
While the government can take an individual’s property through eminent domain, it may only do so under very specific conditions and only if the owner is properly compensated. However, recent eminent domain actions involving the high-speed rail have shown that the government’s position on what is proper compensation is often highly inaccurate. Let Cuttone & Associates handle the negotiation and resolution of the process.
