Land Use Litigation
The majority of real estate transactions convey good title to the property and the boundary lines of the property are clearly defined and understood. However, there can be transactions that took place decades ago during which certain parties who should have been included in the conveyance were not included, or where the conveyance was made informally without proper signatures or recording of the deed with the Recorder of Deeds. Circumstances such as this generate defects in the title to the property and require an action to Quiet Title to correct defects in the chain of title to the property. Barbara C. Litten has represented numerous clients in quiet title actions resulting in clear title for the property.
Lots sold from informal, unrecorded subdivisions can have errors in the boundary line descriptions. While the majority of such lots are correctly described, some are not. When an error appears with respect to a boundary line description, the matter must be resolved either through negotiation and agreement between the adjoining landowners or, if an agreement cannot be reached, through an order of court defining the boundary line after an evidentiary hearing about the boundary lines. In either situation, Barbara C. Litten has extensive experience in land use litigation, and will represent you professionally and aggressively to secure your ownership rights with respect to your real property.
When property is owned by more than one person, disputes can arise over the use and ownership of the property. The solution to this situation is to divide the property between the parties. However, this solution cannot always be reached without litigation. When litigation is required, it is called a partition action. Partition actions require an attorney with extensive experience in all areas of real estate law. Barbara C. Litten has more than 15 years of experience in real estate law and has represented clients in partition actions.
